[comics] The Graphic Truth — Julie Burchill on comics. ‘…a lot of the time, I was just being intolerant of perfectly harmless, inoffensive people and the stuff they liked, whose only sin was that I just didn’t get it for reasons to do with my own impatience and literal-mindedness. Adults who read comics was a big one with me. I didn’t just believe that anyone over the age of 15 who read comics should have their voting rights removed (even if they didn’t have them yet), I also believed that they shouldn’t be allowed access to further education or to adopt small children. But thankfully, I have become a lot more open-minded in my old age and now enjoy the works of Daniel Clowes and Terry Moore on a regular basis.’
