Synopsis: Levitz's thesis: "I write this in the hope that I might make discoveries when I read criticism of comics art, and not merely read opinions of an issue, a story, or a creator. What criticism of our medium needs is a frame of reference, and a sustained level of introspection."
Notes: A thoughtful and thought-provoking two-page essay.
