      Chip and his paraliterary excursions gets name-checked at the beginning of
      this review ('Best Erotic Comics 2009"):

      Critic and novelist Samuel Delaney [sic] describes genres that exist outside
      or on the fringes of so-called high-brow legitimacy as the "para-literary."
      Alongside science fiction, fantasy, hard-boiled detective noir, and pulp,
      Delany particularly champions comic books and pornography as worthy of
      socio-cultural observation and critique. His line is that one can learn just
      as much, if not more, about what is on the minds of the people, their
      collective imagination, their desires, their humanity, by examining what
      they gravitate towards for pleasure and entertainment as one can by
      canonizing the hoity-toity.
