Douglas Wolk… Dean of American Comics Critics
Steven Ward, rockcritics.com, 2007
THAT TITLE WAS not self-proclaimed by Douglas Wolk. I came up with the unofficial designation as soon as I finished the last page of Wolk's Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean($22.95 Da Capo Press). It occurred to me that sometime in the near future – if not already – the comics fanboy community as well as the pop culutre world will consider Wolk one of the premier critics of all things graphic novels.
