pp.34–35   “Let us now go one step further and consider comic strips, as a class, as serious art. […] Like every other art form, the comic strip has certain limitations, at first sight discouraging, which become virtues in the right hands.”   Added by: joachim
p.39   “The world of King, Canifff, and Capp—to name only three of the best—is ample evidence that comic strips are a serious art demanding serious study. All the medium really needs now is a set of critics who will edit the classics, define the genres, catalogue the conceits, and elaborate the aesthetics. The time is not far hence when Professors of Comics will take their rightful place besides Professors of Literature, and our children will be given great gobbets of Orphan Annie or Mutt and Jeff as homework.”   Added by: joachim
