|Great parody from Penny Arcade :-)|

Here's a great article from The Comic Journal (an academic source!) about the backlash from Scott McCloud's Reinventing Comics. We only read portions of the book, but McCloud makes some pretty controversial claims (particularly about the business of web comics) that a lot of people didn't take very well. Where Understanding Comics didn't generate the debate he had hoped for, Reinventing Comics generated tons! If you're using his ideas, it might be worthwhile to take a look at this piece and some of the author's sources (like the one below) as well.
Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?
