Go, Read: Daniel Clowes, His Mural, Eightball Under Glass
There are a couple of bigger-than-usual media treatments of the cartoonist Daniel Clowes today, as his Modern Cartoonist show opens up in his one-time stomping grounds of Chicago. The Chicago Tribune has an article that includes a guided tour of the Chicago-based mural he made for the show. For someone who visited that city several times in the 1970s, the imagery brings back a flood of memories. The Reader has a profile up from Noah Berlatsky, who defends himself in the comments.
