While anyone who peruses this blog on a regular basis is clearly aware that the stern, stoic and no-nonsense journalist-types you'll find around here have no use for meaningless diversions such as comic books (shut up, peanut gallery...), we may just have to re-evaluate our position--because apparently, they can make your kids s-m-r-t (Telegraph). So if you'll excuse me, I think I'll take the rest of the day off to get educated.

I'm a little surprised that there are still people out there who think comics are anything less than wonderful... I just assumed that Wertham's moral panic had moved on to video games.

Also, not enough people seem to appreciate the way comics create an incredibly complex and intuitive relationship between images and text.

Now I'm sad.
