Fashionable Comics

Comics go in and out of fashion all the time, but have they ever been literally fashionable?

Yes, Paul Pope and James Jean are working with DKNY Jeans and Prada, respectively, but now even comic artists and fans are getting a spread for their "look" in The New York Times.

I suppose the struggle to be taken seriously and being noticed is now over and we're in the early jumped the shark stage. We can all just relax and go back to reading and enjoying comics without the chip on the shoulder, even reading them in public without shame at a sidewalk cafe. Get over it already.

Maybe we can even stop calling them "graphic novels" to bury the comic stink.
