The articles themselves are well done, the ideas expressed in a clear manner.
As for my response, I try to be a man of my word.
And about the write-ups, I need to say this: As an artist and a writer, both of which I have done professionally (although now I devote most of my time to writing) it is VERY hard for me to "get meaning" or "derive an absolute truth" from art (or even writing for that matter). Once something gets 'artsy' I tend to lose interest. A body of work, or a piece of art should do something different for each different person who views it. I am totally into comic books. I love the art. Yes, it has one purpose - to tell the story. And yet, there are many ways to do it! There are people who like an artist for how they go about their story-telling art, and others who don't like it for the same reason.
Nevertheless, in spite of my opinionated ranting, you are good at what you are doing with your writing.
