Here are the black-and-white comics I’m now making my way through. I have a bad habit, I guess, of starting and stopping books while I’m in the middle of other books—then again, comics are a bit friendlier to this compulsion as many are serialized to begin with and meant to be read in small chunks. (That said, it’s not lost on me that the Eisner and Tatsumi are not comics of that sort. Alas!)
These three—“Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind” by Hayao Miyazaki, “The Contract with God Trilogy” by Will Eisner, and “A Drifting Life” by Yoshihiro Tatsumi—basically couldn’t be more different. The Tatsumi and Eisner books are autobiographical to varying extents and have that in common, but the actual looks and flows of these things are incredibly distinct.
I don’t think the comic I’m working on now will be anything like these, but who knows when inspiration can strike.
