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."
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.
That was the unexpected $2000 'question' in yesterday's Double Jeopardy category of "Graphic Novels on Film." This a day after Spiegelman was name-checked in a category about New York City. What is going on here? The 'answer' was something like "In this film, Enid and Rebecca are best friends entering adulthood" or something like that (I honestly don't remember, it was too surreal, I was discombobulated). Sadly, none of the contestants responded. Other questions in the category were about 300, The Road to Perdition, The Crow, and From Hell.
