Marvel Monsters and Monkey Kings make mayhem in The Comics Journal #284! Gary Groth interviews cartoonist Roger Langridge, creator of a rogue's gallery of characters such as Fred the Clown, Art d'Ecco and Knuckles the Malevolent Nun. The New Zealand native will also talk about his collaborative work, such as his recent turn as the artist for Marvel's Fin Fang Foom — and, as an added bonus, we present the complete twenty-page strip "Mugwhump's Big Night," with guest appearances by both Fred and Knuckles. Also interviewed is Xeric-winner Gene Yang, whose young-adult graphic novel, American Born Chinese, was recently nominated for a National Book Award. From the turn of the 19th century, Frederick Burr Opper's comic strip Happy Hooligan — one of the inspirations for Chaplin's Little Tramp — is examined, complete with approximately 30 Sunday strips reproduced in full color. Plus, John A. Lent on the modern Asian comics industry, R.C. Harvey on Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Hokusai, Donald Phelps on K. Thor Jensen's Red Eye, Black Eye, and much more.

"The venerable magazine of comics criticism, analysis, and news has become even richer in its in depth coverage and scrutiny of the past, present, and future of not only American comics, but also comics the world over." – Comic Book Bin
