In the first installment of a series of articles examing the definition of "comic", Patric Lewandowski looked at existing efforts to define the nature of comics and proposed that another approach is needed. In the second installment Lewandowski set out the four criteria that he proposed to use in his examination of a new definition for comics.
In this article, Lewandowski focuses in on the first of his four criteria: the intent of the creator. What does this criteria mean? How is it defined? Why do we need it?
In this month's Panels & Pictures, Derik A Badman takes a close look at "Murder Dreams", a short comic from 1954 drawn by B. Krigstein.

Tom Brazelton of Theater Hopper writes about voting in the Iowa caucus this week. I think it's nuts that we basically give roughly 300,000 people (200,000 Democrats and about 100,000 Republicans participated) in Iowa so much sway over who the nominees are going to be but it's good to see at least one webcomic creator exercising their civic responsibilities.
Anyone else getting involved in the year-long circus that is the American presidential election? Anyone simply making comics about it?
