Beyond the Galaxy 082209 -- Being an occasional assemblage of links to posts and articles I found enjoyable, informative and/or infuriating.

* Frank Santoro explains his comment about 80 percent of alt.comix lacking structure, and yeah, I get it now. Makes sense. I think I'm down with what he's saying here. That said, I'll take just about any "unstructured" artcomic over the "structure" found in 100 percent of current Marvel and DC titles any-freaking-day.

* Sean T. Collins looks at West Coast Blues.

* Chris Allen likes The Lone Ranger Vol. 2.

* In a rambling but extremely thoughtful essay, Geoff Grogan examines the effect of format upon the experience of art. Grogan knows from formats, being the creator of Look Out! Monsters.

* Not Comics: Wil Wheaton looks back at a key moment of his early fame, and remembers his experiences filming and promoting Stand By Me. Wheaton's reminiscences and anecdotes are always entertaining and insightful; I can't believe someone who's had the career he has is so straightforward and balanced, which is why I love his writing.

* Say, reader, you enjoying these Beyond the Galaxy posts at all? Just curious if you find them useful. Let me know.
