COMICS CRITICAL ESSAYS TO WRITE: One, MF Doom's Operation Doomsday (an album) considered as a transformative Fantastic Four fan fiction (he changes Dr. Doom's origin so that Reed Richards sabotaged young Von Doom's experiment that scarred his face.) Two, comparing and contrasting Mark Kalesniko's Mail Order Brider with David Mack's entire Kabuki oeuvre, wherein the former uses a character to examine his obsession with Asian girls from a distance, and the latter builds a conventional narrative using his obsession with Asian girls as a medium almost. Yessiree.
