My latest piece is up at:
It begins like this:
In the 1980s, when Goshkin had begun writing about comics, there were those who objected he knew nothing about them. This objection was not entirely unfounded, and while he had filled in some gaps in his knowledge, another generation or two of cartoonists had come along with whom he had not kept up, so, proportionately, 30-years down the road, he probably knew less.
Still, when a Croatian woman contacted him because of their shared “love” of comics and offered to send him samples of her work, he did not explain that he did not apply the word “love” much beyond what he felt for his wife Ruth, or that he barely read any comics. He said, “Sure.”
I have nothing else in the pipeline, so that should be it for a while.
