Invasion of the Literaries

We might not get laughed out of the room, but the question is: would we want to be stuck in it with some guy who would ask: Since we already have Aristophanes, who needs Kurtzman? Since we have Erasmus of Rotterdam, why would we want Steve Martin? With Wagner still available, who cares about the Firehouse Five? Furthermore, would we let that guy organize the party music?

What appears at first to be taking a more stringent view is in fact applying irrelevant criteria. It dismantles the idea of a comic and leaves the parts hopelessly undone.

The Flash vs. Gurdjieff by Alejandro Jodorowsky. bonus craziness: The comics journal talks to Alejandro Jodorowsky (Sample answer: "This question is too long and annoying for me. I stop to fart.")
