03/07/2007 Entry: "Comics and death"

"I doled out a big dose of Opinion #3 yesterday, so I wonít bore you with it again. Instead, Iíll note that this reminds me of a George Carlin joke. I donít remember it well enough to recite verbatim, alas, but I can paraphrase: Carlin was talking about all the doomsday scenarios over the environment, and was having none of it. The planetís going to be fine, he said. If we fill it with plastic crap, Mother Nature will evolve animals capable of eating plastic; if the air becomes more carbon dioxide than oxygen, then life forms capable of thriving on carbon dioxide will become the dominant species, is all. Nature is resilient. The planetís going to be fine.

"Itís the human race thatís fucked, not the planet.

"So too with comics. Superhero comics turning into a more elaborate clusterfuck, attracting hardcore nerds and repelling everyone else? Big deal. Something else will rise elsewhere to fill whatever active demand isnít being met by superhero comics. In fact, it already has, and it may account for 90% of bookstore sales, if the guy talking to Dallas Middaugh was telling the truth. When the superhero nerds die off and comics shops follow them into oblivion, comics will still be available at Borders, or online, or from some other outlet that sees a buck to be made."
Journalista, March 7, 2007

I shall etch these words, all of them, into my heart and be comforted.
