At Comics Worth Reading, Joanna Draper Carlson reviews a book about cartooning. It sounded uninteresting until I came to the paragraph below.  That made me laugh.  I enjoyed all of Scott McCloud‘s books, so it’s not like books about drawing cartoons have to be dull.

My favorite piece of advice in the whole book is as follows: “Be interesting. Nobody cares about you. I doubt a comic book about the recent breakup of your romantic relationship would be very entertaining. You know who’s going to read that? Lonely people! You know what’s wrong with lonely people? No word of mouth!”
