Kudos to Ned Vizzini, writing in the New York Times Book Review, for being one of the first non-cartoonists I have seen publicly defending the word “comics” (well, he says “comic book,” which isn’t exactly the same, but it’s close enough):
…it is easy to forget that “American Born Chinese” also functions well as a comic book. (Many graphic novelists are taking back this once-disparaging term.)
(from his review of American Born Chinese and the forthcoming anthology Stuck in the Middle, p. 24 of the NYTBR of Sunday May 13, 2007)
