Thought Bubble #1: Why Aren’t Comics Funnier?By Matt D. WilsonThe comics medium attempts to answer a lot of big questions: Is it right to take the law into your own hands? What would someone do with special powers, given the opportunity? “Are you ready for the world that’s coming?” In that spirit, ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson is asking comics creators, retailers and commentatorssome big questions of his own.
In this installment, Roger Langridge, Jim Rugg, Michael Kupperman, Jeff Parker, Benito Cereno and Aaron from Awesomed By Comics answer the question: Why aren’t more comics, particularly comics from major publishers, funny?
Reasons you should click-thru and read this:
- It contains really great observations about comedy in comic books with some of the funniest writers out there.
- It’s “moderated” by War Rocket Ajax’s Matt Wilson, who also literally wrote the book on supervillainy.
- I designed that swell header image.
That is all.
I contributed an opinion to this with an answer that looks like I was cribbing off of Clevinger’s paper (I was; I always am).
