CR Magazine: Monday Special
I have limited access to the Internet this week, and need to spend what time I do have in fulfillment of other obligations. Please enjoy the following mix of new features and archived treasures, and regular newsblogging will resume on Monday. Thank you.
Peter Bagge Interview
-- The best comedy writer working in comics, and one of the best period, Peter Bagge has enjoyed an impressive Spring 2005 with a series from Dark Horse, Apocalypse Nerd
, the collection of his seminal Hate
material, Buddy Does Seattle
, and a continuing presence as a first-person essayist for the magazine Reason
. He was nice enough to let me ask him a few questions about his current slate of projects.
Alex Robinson Interview
-- This is a short piece I did with Box Office Poison
creator Alex Robinson that I wasn't able to find a home for; we talk about his recent trip to the Angouleme Festival, and his winning a prize there for best first book.
Personal Preview: The Classic Comics Illustrators
-- A editing project of mine that will be out this summer is a book collecting five interviews with five significant comics artists of the old-school illustrative persuasion. Here is a snippet of a Frank Frazetta interview from that book as conducted by Gary Groth. For a limited time only.
-- This Jeff Smith Interview of mine from late 1999 will only be up a short time. Includes the story that got Dave Sim riled up. 48 hours only.
