My First Comics Piece at PopMatters!


Posted by TERESA

After lots of changes within the editorial staff and lots of waiting and wondering, a new editor has been selected for the comics section at, and my first review has finally been posted!  Check out my take on the most recent Runaways story arc, Dead Wrong.


The poor characterization in “Dead Wrong” points to a failure of the creative team. The biggest failure in a successful comic title is to deny established continuity. A creative team should not impose themselves on a title, but instead should become a part of it.  It is the difference between being an obvious tourist and getting to know the locals.

From now on, I’ll probably be contributing in a more bloggy way over at PopMatters.  The new editor seems to appreciate my informal, yet intelligent voice and thinks I’d be better served by blog entries instead of straight reviews.  I love editors who are good at feeling out the strengths of their writers!  This will be fun!  *realizes that pitches for blog entries are due today and runs to do them*
