Waiting for Planetary
Dave Lewis ponders Waiting for Planetary in a piece (link no longer available) that explores the nature of serial comics.
I wonder now if Planetary shouldn’t be kept off schedule. I wonder now how long we can delay the inevitable. I wonder if, with less than a half-dozen issues remaining, how many more years Planetary can be sustained.
It sounds tongue-in-cheek, I know, but I’m being sincere. Has anyone stopped buying Planetary because of the delays? Have stores stopped ordering it? Have the stories themselves devolved in quality? I haven’t, they haven’t, and Planetary hasn’t.
(PS, love the title — I’m a sucker for a good Gene-Wilder-as-Willy-Wonka quote.)
