Jog on Betsy and Me -- Every once in a while, you read a review you wish you wrote. I wish I was even capable of writing as insightful and nuanced a review as Jog's review of Jack Cole's Betsy and Me. I mentioned earlier this week that I thought the book was worth reading, but damn if Jog doesn't explore why in unimpeachable terms.

(Emphasis mine).

Anyone worried that we don't have enough language to criticize comics as a distinct artform needs to read more of Jog's reviews, especially this one. To quote Kevin on The Office:
