Art Spiegelman: Yiddish and Comics

imageIn a very brief interview that might be worth an on-line translation for you formalists out there, Art Spiegelman expands on comments that the language of comics and Yiddish have comparable features. He also gracefully responds to an observation I hadn't heard yet, the suggestion that his recent recognition by the French cultural ministry had more to do with the anniversary of Auschwitz than an estimation of the award-winning cartoonist's career output.
