We belong to the future!

New review at The Walrus, "Canada's Best Magazine."

The review begins: "Imagine a book publisher had released a retrospective on “The Graphic Novel” in 1976, or that a cinema hosted a look back at France’s nouvelle vague in 1957, or that a gallery exhibit somewhere spotlighted American Abstract Expressionism in, say, 1946. The experience would have been not unlike reading Abstract Comics: The Anthology today." I'm not sure the reviewer means this as 100% a compliment (actually, it's clear he doesn't--not 100%, that is), but I certainly choose to take it as one... Are you kidding? I would have loved to do a survey of Abstract Expressionism in 1946!
