50 Comics Positives For 2014: This Great Photo Of Art Spiegelman Surrounded By Schoolchildren
I don't remember why this photo came out and I only remember roughly when I first saw it (late September). I'm not even sure I know where that is; I'm thinking these are maybe French schoolchildren (the scarves). The thing is, I don't care about any of the attendant facts even whether or not this is a 2014 photo as much as I delight in how awesome this photo is and remain happy I got to see it this year.
Every cartoonist in the world should at one time in their lives be photographed surrounded by interested-to-adoring youngsters. It's also a reminder that Art Spiegelman is a fine public representative of the medium, articulate and engaged, and we're lucky to have him.
