Go, Read: John Marshall Profile

This local newspaper profile of Blondie artist John Marshall interests me for a couple of reasons, and not just because you can argue anyone doing Blondie is likely a top ten cartoonist in terms of overall audience. First, it shows a career path unique to comic strips, as Marshall goes from someone on the syndicate's radar with is own strip to inking work and eventually to name-on-the-strip status. Second, Marshall seems pretty off-the-cuff honest about the time and effort he puts in doing the strip -- which he does completely electronically, which is sort of fascinating, too -- and the strip's unbelievably sold position on the comics page.
