Comics have a problem, and that is continuity - the obsession with placing the characters in an existing world, where every event is marked in canon.

The Western musical canon came about not merely by accumulation, but by opposition and subversion, both to the ruling powers on whom composers depended for their livelihoods and to other musics.

I can do ten videos for a project for the price of one mainstream video in the past.
'Catholic writer' seems like you have an agenda of evangelization, as if you were somehow influenced in your choice of perspective by dogma or canon law. That has nothing to do with me. I don't have a lot in common with other 'Catholic' writers.
