Nice interview with both Dan Clowes and Seth over at Newcity Lit (via Forbidden Planet International) particularly Seth on influences:

"As I have grown older I’ve become more convinced that being an artist doesn’t have much to do with being “original.” I think it has more to do with simply allowing yourself to follow a thread of interest wherever it takes you."

PLENTY of good reading on comics today, and a nice quote from Art Spiegelman:

"...it’s not an accident that, while bookstores are all in a tizzy, one of the more lively and alive sections is the so-called “graphic novel” section, because those are harder to replace."
