OS POSITIVOS

he will come around

hum... esta página já tem alguns anos (2016).
E se procurasses alguma coisa mais recente ?

Monica Johnson publicou no TCJ desta quinta-feira uma pequena coluna que mais ou menos resume a nossa própria posição sobre o tema: porque entrámos na BD nos anos 90, porque o underground norte-americano foi-nos o seu período e formato mais relevante, e porque cada vez menos nos relacionamos aos cómicos hoje em dia:

  • I find the feminist underground comix from the 1970s so appealing.
  • The ’90s should be my generation of comics (...) the times were so heavy with identity politics (...) The comics were either too dark, too gruesome, or too didactic.
  • Now, just seconds from turning forty, I’m both politicized and angry, and I long for the intensity of those ’90s comics.

Um dos comentários resume o resto:

Not to digress from this very worthy topic, but I do find that younger alt-comics cartoonists in general are more risk averse and less inclined to throw themselves onto the page in as extreme a manner as the underground/alt cartoonists of yore. There are a number of possible reasons and tangents for this. One of them is that comics have now “arrived” and is attracting A LOT more commercial-minded cartoonists (whether they are aware of it or not), people with less of a chip on their shoulders, less intense emotional engagement with their comics.
