Go, Read: Cartoonist Matt Bors Profiled By Time

There was a time when a Time magazine profile of a cartoonist would have seemed an astonishing thing rather than the obvious nice thing that I figure it likely was for Matt Bors. Now what interests is a detail here and there and, perhaps, the general effect. Those of us with our noses pressed against the windowpane on the front of the Team Comics house forget that Bors' work might be seen as radical for those who grew up with traditional editorial cartooning. Part of what he's doing is making people like the people that read Time broaden their definitions just enough to give him a chance. Also, this is the rare article on doing journalism in comics form that doesn't mention Joe Sacco.
