50 Comics Positives For 2014: Jules Feiffer Declares He’ll Do Long-Form Comics For Rest Of Career


It was a part of his publicity campaign for the 85-year-old's Kill My Mother that escaped attention: Jules Feiffer has been telling people he's pretty much locked in on doing long-form comics for the remainder of his career, however many years he has left. Initially that will mean the two books that will make Kill My Mother into 1/3 of a triology. After that, who knows? The great thing about this, of course, is that despite having done some short novellas in his career, Feiffer is best known for his self-named award-winning newspaper strip. Kill My Mother is his first comic of this length. If nothing else, Feiffer proclaiming this sort of affection for the long-narrative format should be a shot in the from for an approach to comics that could arguable seem to have peaked two, three years ago.
