I actually don't read the essays, as I prefer the comics so much more. (Same usually goes with forewords/afterwords, et al.)

CRIMINAL v.5 was solid, but then I also think that Tracy Lawless is one of the best characters he's come up with. INCOGNITO's first two or three issues were great and then it made an abrupt turn that I couldn't endorse, but the art and colors were still very very pretty.

CATWOMAN is great until Cameron Stewart leaves, though really it reaches a high point with #19 or so. The Gulacy issues made me politely set the book down and walk away.

Brubaker usually writes some sort of carefully modest/egregiously self-aggrandizing end note at the end of every issue of his self-published books. Typical comics writer prose.

Come to think of it, graphic novel introductions seem to bring out the bad writer in everyone who's ever produced one (see especially anything published by DC/Vertigo). I usually ignore/skim intros, but I imagine they somewhat reinforce comics' geeky image to a non-comics reader.

(Having said that, David Lloyd's gloomy Gus intro to V for Vendetta is kind of hilarious.)

(I hope it's an explanation why he hasn't called Alan Moore to thank him for the movie money)

Well, because whatever happened changed him. (Dr. Superman), Tuesday, 14 September 2010 21:36 (nine years ago) link

heard an interview with the Brube a few months ago, and each episode of this is 90 minutes long

Bru's episode in the first season of Westworld S1 was one of the two really good ones I thought.
