Five Graphic Novel Formalists Discuss their Passion and Struggles
Mary Peterson brought back to my attention an interactive feature of five comic artists discussing their views of the visual language of graphic novels. All five (art spiegelman, Chris Ware, Seth, Chester Brown, and Joe Sacco) push the formal limits of comic art, while remaining effective storytellers. Seth's commentary about design and poetry rang particularly true, as well as Chris Ware's honest sharing of the challenges of the medium.
