The X-Axis by Paul O'Brien
DAREDEVIL #51 - David Mack arrives for a new storyline, and kicks off with
an issue that amounts to a one-issue monologue summarising the history of
Echo. It is, of course, beautiful. On the other hand, it raises my
hackles by spending several pages rhapsodising about the glory of visual
storytelling. Why can't comics artists just prove how good they are
instead of droning on about it? I'm fed up of reading comics about how
good comics are. The very fact that people seem to feel the need to keep
producing them is, if anything, testimony to how few people agree.
Anyway, if you can ignore the tedious promotion of the medium (even the
converted can be bored by preaching), it is undeniably a very well put
together monologue. I am open to persuasion as to whether it actually
constitutes a comic.
