Where does the Wright opinion come from?
Why, from me, Brendan Wright. I’m an assistant editor at Dark Horse comics and a longtime comics fan from Portland, Oregon, the town that is likely second only to New York as the comics-heaviest city in America and the home of Oni Press, Top Shelf, Cellar Door, the aforementioned Dark Horse, and probably others. I honed my critical skills while earning my film degree at the University of Southern California, but have turned them on comics, my first artistic love.
Working in comics should be enough, but I’m always reading and always thinking, so this site is my extra outlet for comics talk. From July 2007 until August 2008, the Wright Opinion was a semi-regular repository for my comics reviews and interviews, plus the occasional essay. Because I now work at Dark Horse, things are slightly more complicated than that. Obviously, I won’t be reviewing books by Dark Horse or by comics writers or artists who have extensive relationships with Dark Horse. I don’t expect to write much about working at Dark Horse, though now and again a small detail of my job may be worth sharing.
Interviews are still coming, and I likely can’t resist a long-form essay now and again. Movie stuff will probably work its way in, too.
Naturally, as this is the Wright Opinion, all opinions expressed within are my own and do not reflect those of Dark Horse or anyone else who works there.
