"But being a comic-book lover and an obsessive reader of book reviews started to clash. The comic-book–industry writers left me cold, possessing as they do a level of dedication to minutiae that I’ve never understood -- 3,000-word reviews on the new storyline arc for X-Men, or a 20-page interview with a man who once drew Superman in the ’80s. And the mainstream book reviewers -- who began to cover comics after a few titles won some important awards (like, oh, I don’t know, the Pulitzer) -- quickly got stuck in a rut. They didn’t know comic books, and they didn’t want to take the time to get to, either. But damn it all if they weren’t going to judge them anyway." ~ from Jessa Crispin Offers Graphic Advice link from Neil Gaiman's blog

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
