Another guest post provided by the Bold-but-Bashful BARRY PEARL, Criv-ite chums. Straight over to Barry to explain things in his short intro.
As a comic book “Discoverer” I enjoy finding new things, even if they are old. In 1972, Arthur Berger discussed how comics were then being recognized as part of the American culture.
There is more than meets the eye in the comics; the fact that increasingly large numbers of people are beginning to read them and study them is, strange as it may seem, a sign of intellectual sophistication and cultural maturity… thanks in part to the youthful rebellion and the various counter-culture movements, as well as a sudden curiosity about the significance of many everyday aspects of our daily life, we are beginning to mine our own treasures. It's about time.
And thanks once again to Barry for providing this article first posted over on Facebook. Be sure to let him know what you think in the comments section.
