Paper v pixels examined again
Amid the "it’s been three days, is Johnny Hart still dead?" cracks elsewhere in the blogosphere, over at the Huffington Post student Frankie Thomas remembers Hart by placing his comics firmly in her childhood, then continues, "Let’s face it: when it comes to comics, print media is dead." She goes on to talk about the webcomics which excite her nowadays, which is a good thing for webcomics as HuffPo is an extremely popular group blog, but a bad thing when she confuses form with venue by referring to comic strips themselves as "a lost art" after she’s just extolled them. (I think what she meant to say was that newspapers were a lost cause as far as comic strips are concerned.)
Seems to me it’s always more enjoyable to read people who don’t feel they have to put down one thing (print) in order to appreciate the other (pixels), so I much preferred Wil Wheaton’s short list of the webcomics that have made him laugh lately (including, of course, one featuring him).
