Thee Comic Column #92: Kelley Jones’ The Hammer

The Hammer 2Recently I found myself waxing philosophical about horror. Horror as a frame of mind, an emotion and subsequently horror as a genre: a form of art that, when you reach back past the soma-ridden exteriors of our gadgety, distraction-obsessed world, you inevitably find as a testament to our very existence. An existence that proves that all those distractions we so continually improve, update and rely on are actually serve a very important purpose.

Our toys and technology distract us from the horrors at the very heart of our existence.

Let’s talk about reading habits. Several weeks ago I was firmly entrenched in my weekly floppies, marveling at the usual monthly awesomeness by Remender, Kirkman and some new stuff by Ennis. However, one thing that this column does not reflect, for obvious reasons, is that I do not only read comics. Literature is also a love of mine, from F. Scott Fitzgerald, to Bret Easton Ellis, David Foster Wallace, Donna Tartt – the list goes on and on. In short if we were to talk about my reading habits they are, in a word, habitual.
