Go, Read: Brian Walker Interview

imageAn excellent short interview of Brian Walker conducted by Todd Hignite of Comic Art at the time of the Masters of American Comic opening has finally made its way on-line. Hignite asks smart questions, in a way that allows the casual reader to stay with the discussion but gets at some very complex issues in the way comics art is perceived. For example, he broaches the subject of the relative disfavor with which the illustrative comic strip artists are seen by some in a direct, unadorned fashion. The interview drops a bunch of compelling tidbits, too, like the fact there's very little Roy Crane art left out there. There's even a bonus joke by Art Chantry in the comments section.

CR reader Charles Orr notes this NPR with Walker is now up, too.
