If I had to pick one single comic that helped raise my consciousness of the social injustices and crass exploitation at the heart of the mainstream american comic book industry this would be it. Ironic then, that given the content of this book, Dylan Horrocks, the author of this "independent" comic would then fall for the siren song of the system and end up writing  corporate comics like Batgirl and burnout, but I digress...

This book is clearly the work of a man who loves the comics medium. Still, be warned, this is also about everything else that goes with it, all the nastiness, greed and pettiness that kept (keeps?) the medium and its practitioners from achieving its/their full potential. Yet, Hicksville IS a love letter to comics... I guess sometimes only someone who loves you can tell you the truth, right?
