Comics writers take note.

Jesse Hamm has some interesting (though not entirely convincing) things to say about why comics writers should step off and let the artist draw. I'm not sold on his line of action "rule," his ideas on visual cliche's seem a little too vague, I kind of like the "archie andrews two-face" and a few of his examples are really worse-case-scenario kind of things where the artist should just call the writer up and call them names. Hamm's always pretty insightful though, when it comes to the technical conventions of comics and it would do everyone well to read his post and mull it over.

I'll have some of my own opinions on the collaboration process for comics in a day or so.
