We’re finally tackling our first graphic novel, a book lots of our friends have recommended to us over the past few years. Asterios Polyp tackles big questions about memory and identity, but it’s also pretty funny.
Talking points this week include: duality, form and function, Ziggy, harsh workshop criticism, novels of ideas, and Buzz Bissinger. Also, Mike’s got a pretty big announcement about his rating system, and our world famous MATRs.
