Go, Read: Various Chris Ware/Joe Sacco Appearance Reports
Chris Ware and Joe Sacco appeared at an event run in conjunction with the Edinburgh Book Festival this week; Joe Gordon of the FPI blog writes about that joint interview here. I imagine there are others. I'm not sure there's a ton in that report that fans of either artist wouldn't already know, but the pictures made me laugh and every encounter with those two artists is someone's first. Sacco and Ware are two of comics' best ambassadors in terms of being smart, engaging and articulate on their feet; I don't think it comes naturally for Ware, so I think it's a real boon for the medium that's he done a relatively high number of appearances over the last several months in conjunction with the release of last year's holiday present of the season, Building Stories. As a reader and a fan I am so looking forward to the work that we should get this next decade from that generation of alternative cartoonists that emerged in the late '80s and early '90s. It should be something to behold.
