Entry 0027 -- Just finished reading the David Mazzucchelli-drawn City of Glass graphic novel -- a story about stories, much in the mode of Burroughs's Naked Lunch -- only I enjoyed City of Glass. Other than Batman: Year One and Daredevil: Born Again, Mazzucchelli seems off the radar of most comics readers; you ought to do everything you can to rectify that mistake. His work is narrow and hard to master, to quote Jim Morrison, and it's also goddamned hard to find, but City of Glass and Rubber Blanket #1-3 are all brilliant, experimental masterpieces of the comics artform, and your appreciation of what comics can be will be considerably widened if you expose yourself to more of his stories.
