Todd Klein on End of the Century
Todd Klein isn't just the greatest letterer working in the comics industry today (to say nothing of being an incredibly nice guy), he's also a voracious reader, as visitors to his blog can attest. Last night he posted his thoughts on my End of the Century, and though he had some reservations in the end, he said some nice things about the book along the way.
Roberson is, above all, a very ambitious writer, and he writes the kind of stories I like, even if his reach exceeded his grasp a bit on this one, at least in my view.Thanks, Todd! (And for the rest of you, if you have any interest in typography or design and you haven't seen Todd's incredibly insightful analyses on the evolution of various comic book logos, you should do yourself a favor and check it out.)
If you like metafiction, give this one a try. There’s a lot to like in it. Recommended.
