Does In the Studio Count As OTBP?


It's appropriate that Comic Art Editor Todd Hignite and cartoonist Ivan Brunetti are sharing a signing this weekend at Chicago Comics: both have released books with really long titles -- In the Studio: Visits With Contemporary Cartoonists and An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons and True Stories, respectively -- that have come out in a crowded year to not as much fanfare as might have happened in, say, 1998, when either would have been treated as the second coming. They're also from the same publisher, Yale University Press, which is probably more of a factor. Something with these books' pedigrees coming from such a good publisher should never be off the beaten path, but it's that kind of industry now.

Anyway, here's a Brian Doherty piece on Hignite's book from the great "Hit & Run" section of Reason.
