Sorry about the interruption of service; I was out of town for a bit, and when I got back I started agonizing over the next Battle Angel review, because it's my favorite volume of the series and I really want to do it justice. I'm tempted to just stay quiet for the next couple weeks and build up a posting buffer like I should've done before restarting.
In the meantime, I wanted to point everyone at Sarah Horrocks' blog. I tend not to talk about art because I have pretty much no critical vocabulary there, so I'm really glad to find someone who does. I especially love her posts on Blade of the Immortal, and this bit on Jiro Matsumoto is also choice, but it's pretty much all great stuff.
