Best American Comics on PBS in Miami
This made the rounds via Facebook, but here's a direct link. It's a twelve minute video interview with Bill Kartalopoulos, Julia Gfrorer, Gabrielle Bell and myself on PBS at the Miami Book Fair last weekend. I just re-watched it and was pleased to be reminded that so much of the discussion was about the importance of comics being uncategorizeable, and distinct from literature. As comics grows and accumulates mainstream acceptance it still can, hopefully, stay deeply idiosyncratic. Kudos to Bill and Jonathan for assembling such a diverse group of cartoonists in the most 'mainstream' of anthologies.
