Bottomless Belly Button

I’ve got a new piece up at the the Barnes and Noble Review: this one’s a short assessment of a long graphic novel, Dash Shaw’s Bottomless Belly Button. (To read it, scroll down to the bottom of the page, past Felix Dennis and Gorgeous George.)

While we’re on the subject of comics: it occurs to me that no major superhero has a rogue’s gallery quite as dumb and slapped-together as Captain America. Batroc the Leaper? The Serpent Squad? M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed for Only Killing)? After World War II, it was all downhill for Cap.
