B&N Week 179: Mix 'n Match--Which Genres Can Be Mixed To Best Effect?


Weíve got another Tuesday upon us, so that means weíve got another installment of Bolts & Nuts!

This week, we discuss mixing and matching: which genreís can be mixed to best effect?

Iím not going to go deep this week. There are a lot of genres, and within those genres are sub-genres, and thatís a rabbit hole that I donít want to go down too deeply. So, to look at it at a macro-view, we have drama, horror, comedy, mystery, and science fiction/fantasy. Everything else can generally fit underneath those five genres. (I dunnoÖ) Itís okay. I know it feels light. Macro-view, remember? Everything youíve ever seen, heard, or read can be generally categorized as one of these, if not several of them. Simple.

Now things start to get complicated when we talk about media. Comic books are a medium, as is radio, television, novels, and cinema. Certain genres work better in todayís comics than others. A straight drama? Not going to get too much traction. A straight horror? That will have more traction than a straight drama. A straight comedy? Hell, every genre will have more traction in todayís comics than straight drama.
