Steven Universe and Canon: Does Canon Matter?

Steven Universe has a wealth of comics to read and three video games to play, but what of them is canon? Well, there is an official answer from Ian Jones-Quartey, but why be so concerned about canon in the first place? Steven Universe is about characters, right? Why be concerned about whether a story featuring them “really” happened? A good comic is a good comic.

Even if most of the comics get excluded from even “level two” canon status by Mr. Jones-Quartey, the strength of their story means the Steven Universe comics are well worth reading.
