Good morning, my friend,
For my US-based friends, it’s Labor Day - a day to rest and reflect on the hard work we do every day. As such, we’re giving everyone a break this week with a shorter review list.
As for you, rest and reflect. You’ve earned it.
And if you haven’t already, don’t forget to subscribe for more newsletter goodness every week.
This week’s Op-Ed may not be so nice, depending on your point of view. We read several great comics last week, but man oh man, did we get exposed to some stinkers.
When we dig in to figure out how a comic can go so very wrong, often it comes back to the Publishers and Creators not knowing when to back off if something isn’t working.
We all have limitations, so knowing where they are is a good safety barrier to know when it’s time to stop and ask for help. I wish these creators had done the same.
What do you think? Why do so many Publishers and Creators have a hard time saying ‘no’ when the outcome is so predictable if they say ‘yes’? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
It’s the start of a new month, and with that, a special treat for our paid subscribers. The August 2023 wallpaper pack collects the hottest variant covers from August’s most popular review, Robotech: Rick Hunter #1
