PopMatters gives Spiegelman's Co-Mix 10 out of 10 stars

“The High Art of Art Spiegelman: "Co-Mix"” / PopMatters / Nora Brooks / January 15, 2014

High art often mines popular culture for a vernacular iconography: see Roy Lichtenstein’s appropriation of stock comic images or the entire oeuvre of the poet John Ashbery. But Art Spiegelman’s work monumentally reverses this. He mines the surrealist experiments of Duchamp and Picasso to break new ground in grafting pictures to words in a medium too often debased by the culture at large—comics in all its many variations.
