Art Spiegelman & Returning To A Former World
All that to say I stepped back into the world to listen to attend a lecture by Art Spiegelman:
This isn't my first experience with Spiegelman as I went to a showing of the original artwork for the graphic novels Maus. There were a few things that disapointed me:
1) He wasn't giving autographs because of logistical issues. Right, ok fine, I have a feeling like it was more because he didn't want to, but no big deal.
2) He hardly talked about Maus. This disapointment was quickly pushed aside.
He instead talked about the creation of the comic form and how it influenced him. I admit as much as a comic fan as I was during my childhood I didn't know there was a whole world of underground comic books. There is a wonderful streaming video of the event. Enjoy.
Warming about the vid.... there were some naughty pictures in it. not many, but they were there. Watch with caution.
