Great Expectations, Limited Visions -- I don't agree with everything in this "Harvey Jerkwater" essay on three landmark artcomix, but I agree with much of it*, particularly about Blankets and Buddy Bradley, and I heartily recommend giving it a read for no other reason than that someone is expressing negative thoughts about artcomix but actually reading and thinking about them first, and apparently he wasn't "bored" by even the most flawed of the three works.

* I particularly think "Harvey's" read of Jimmy Corrigan is a bit under-nuanced and unappreciative of the depth of despair in Jimmy's relationship to his father and the generational anxieties of the novel, but again, the mere fact that "Harvey" actually read the thing is a cause for celebration among those who discuss comics online.
