I've been planning to write a review of this book for several months, but I got waylaid somewhere. Now,in rereading "More Digressions," I'm surprised by all the topics Mr.David's has covered. And I'm still hoping one of my favorite pieces that he wrote back in the late ninties gets reprinted--that on being when DC started reprinting the first Superman Annuals in the ninties.
Now that was fun reading.
Favorite articles this time around: "Keeping the Faith," a fine look at how George Lucas and his films have treated the concept of faith in his works, and how its changed over the years. One of the best. And I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only who thinks Ahsoka is ah. . . "cute". Possibly, the best thing about the Clone Wars series.
"Maybe It's the Whole Underwear on the Outside Thing." David brings out how fun seems to be lost in comics these days.
And "Lack of Specifics," should be noted for its arguments on having fictional characters taking controversial, possibly real-life stands. Highpoint: a quote from a Marvel editor, who brings out, "our [comic] characters should never have any opinions about anything that could possibly separate them from any of our readers . . ." An excellent point that one is in business to make money, not always alienate the audience. Reading this, I agreed with the unnamed editor.
