Zoe Gardner's Fault
This article is from 2008.
Previously one half of the Congress of Oddities, Gardner is hardly to blame for there being a dearth of quality character comics this year and she does her utmost to pull the genre out of the mire. Sticking a wig on to play her shrill producer and grabbing a clipboard to be a vacuous care worker is fine and well, but an over-reliance on sub-standard creations lets her down.
