In a first for our site, founder Julian Darius’s Sequart.org word count has surpassed one million words! Add to that the books he’s written for Sequart, the pieces he’s contributed to our essay anthologies, and any old essays lost to time or that he decided to not to re-post from an older version of the site, and we could be talking 1.5 million words!
Here are some highlights:
- His massive analysis (53 parts so far!) of Alan Moore’s Miracleman, beginning here.
- His illuminating excavation of the amazing French comic The Obscure Cities, beginning here.
- His selections for the best / most important DC Comics stories of all time, better known as the DC Canon, beginning here.
- And an honorable mention (because it’s not written, it’s video) for his lecture “Why Comics Matter”.
So to the man that started it all, the staff and I would like to congratulate Julian for this stunning and daunting achievement. Here’s to the next million!
