Leave it to Dirk Deppey to close out one of the very best comics blogs ever with one of his most essential posts ever. In his final Journalista, Deppey provides the usual significant links of the day and then goes on to create the most relevant, concise and useful list of comics-related links that could possibly be generated right at this very moment. And then he makes me cry just a little by honouring Trouble With Comics among the blogs he finds worthy. Then he coins the best and most resonant and accurate new term to describe what some fans and sites narrowly focus on, the “Direct Market reservation.” Fucking brilliant. Well played. RIGHT-FUCKING-ON.
Let me just say this and I’ll be done with it:
DIRK DEPPEY IS THE COMICS BLOGGING HERO OF 2010 AND SOMEBODY BETTER GODDAMNED WELL START PAYING HIM TO WRITE ABOUT COMICS SOMETIME IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.
Update: Please stop by Facebook and thank Dirk Deppey for Journalista.
