That Moment Marrons!

I attended the SF UC Alum Harper Lecture Webcast last Thursday night, since it was “Forms & Formats of Autobiography” but she (Hilary Chute) did not make her point, rather she dropped names, hoping to evidence her familiarity with Comics & Zines in Wicker Park via Quimby’s  which is really what her lecture was about — one name she dropped, a zinester had a clue insofar as the author’s spreadsheet/map of life issues & times, looked like an extrapolation and fleshing out of some complex astrological readout with transits, & progressions correlated with event on a 90 degree dial.

She quoted some honcho from the publishing industry who said that zines & comics (graphic “novels”) are saving the print industry from mondo digitalus, never mentioning cyberzines a la blogs & enhanced blogs for that graphic punch — I’ll check out Christopher Ware’s website

Midst her sophistical journeys through the hip part of Chicago & the denizens of the world she believes she commands, how come she isn’t a featured speaker at the current E2C2 — comics and zines conference here in Chicago??? Stan Lee will be there.

Marrons!
