Daniel Clowes talks to the Onion's A.V. Club. Sample quote, on his current NYT strip: "I'm sure 10 times more people are reading it online than in the actual paper. People have complained to me, like 'Man, that's expensive. Five bucks for one page.' Well, you do get a thousand pages of interesting stuff in addition."
Tom Spurgeon just made my day, and not just because his essential Comics Reporter is back up-and-running. No, I'm talkin' about this photo of Jeff Foxworthy and Wilson Fisk (a.k.a. the fuckin' Kingpin of Crime), from Halloween night circa 1996:
I liked the punk rock earnestness of this GOOD magazine essay about the coming-of-age of contemporary graphic novelists like Clowes, Bagge & Ware. You gotta love anyone who can work Chris Ware, Dan Clowes, Charles Peterson, Estrus Records, Hate, Love & Rockets, Oui, Jasper Johns, Ted Nugent, Tron and at least three liberal arts colleges into 750 words.

Happy new year, faithful floggers. I begin the new year with yet another "Best Of" list. You've no doubt had enough of them, these "Top Tens" and "Must Have" lists and checklists from hither and yon. I promise to not inundate you with the vast majority of such digital miscellany, but to our fellow cartoon publishers, I have but one question for you: How many of your books made the list of The Top Cryptozoology Books of 2007? Yeah, that's right, I'm talkin' to you. What's that? I can't hear you. Huh? Yeah, that's what I thought. You can shut up now.
