Top Ten Comic Book Cities

Tuesday, 11th August 2009

The Architects Journal lists their Top Ten Comic Book Cities. Unlike the top ten gaming cities they ran short while ago, this is a pretty solid list. Miller’s New York City, Moore’s and Campbell’s London, Morrison and Quitely’s Metropolis are significant studies of urbanism through the medium of the comic book, with Frank Miller, in particular, being formative in redirecting an entire publishing industry through his early work on Daredevil - where Hells Kitchen was as much a character as Daredevil.

And fancy that, I was only just now inserting images of the city of Moebius’ The Long Tomorrow into a presentation for tomorrow’s studio.
