EW reviewer Douglas Wolk tackles the divide between literary criticism and genre-geek-thusiasm in his new book, Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean. Amid elucidation of comics theory (yes, it exists) and critical takes on authors such as Frank Miller (300), Hope Larson (Gray Horses), and Gilbert Hernandez (Love & Rockets), Wolk references the likes of Susan Sontag and Immanuel Kant as unabashedly as he name-checks Laverne & Shirley.
