I don’t know how Eric Burns manages to write as much as he does. And everything he writes is good. For an example of something extraordinarily long and yet packed with thoughtful discussion, see his latest: Sacred hamburger: the role of our heroes in the decline of the newspaper comics page. (Whew, even that title is long…)
This is a logical, well-written, thoroughly researched piece, and it deserves the attention of everyone who is even remotely interested in comics. His conclusion may surprise you.
