America needed comics; it didn't really matter if they were original or not. People had money to burn and wanted to laugh.

If a comic is doing old jokes or someone else's jokes or someone else's persona or pandering to mediocrity without an original thought or even a flash of brilliance and just making people 'laugh' without any creative integrity at all I think they're bad.

In the sixties and seventies you could probably name all the great comics. It was still special.
