"A Call For Higher Criticism" - Edit this story

Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this story

Writer(s):
Paul Levitz

Characters:    Add/remove characters to this story

Groups:    Add/remove groups to this story

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.
