Comic-Con 2004:
Michael Chabon's Keynote Address At The Eisners

It's not often that Comic-Con gets a Pulitzer Prize winner in its midst, though perhaps as comics become more and more mainstream, there will be more than one such of the stature of Michael Chabon.

After winning said prize for writing a love letter to comics (and life) in The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Chabon continued his day job as respected novelist. But by night, he became a creator of comic books, first contributing a Mr. Terrific story to DC's JSA: All-Stars series last year, then by adapting and orchestrating others adaptations of The Escapist, Kavalier and Clay's creation, to his own Dark Horse series this year.

At this year's Eisner Awards, Chabon gave the keynote speech. As you might expect, it was brilliant and impassioned. And it has struck a chord.

A reader pointed out to me that Comic-Con has posted the text of that speech on their website, and because Chabon makes such an important point, I agree with that reader that if you haven't read it already, you should now follow this link to Michael Chabon's keynote speech.
