Description

Inkstuds is a collection of thirty interviews with North American alternative comic artists taken from the impressive archive that Robin McConnell has built up over the past 5 years on his radio show of the same name. The interviews focus on the creative process and influences, but the subjects discussed often branch off in surprising and interesting directions. The artists chosen cover the range from the older generation of underground cartoonists to the new generation of the comics avant garde. This book is an invaluable resource, not just for comic enthusiasts but anyone interested in the artistic process.Featuring interviews with Seth, Chester Brown, Jaime Hernandez, Jillian Tamaki, Joe Sacco, Françoise Mouly, Kim Deitch, Gary Panter, Gabrielle Bell and many more."It's the closest thing to an Inside the Actor's Studio of comics." -- Bryan Lee O'Malley"It's rare in the media today that people who really know and love comics, creators and connoisseurs, get the chance to express their ideas and opinions with an engaged and engaging interviewer. Robin McConnell makes this possible and helms the proceedings a pleasure to listen to and now to read." -- Paul Gravett "It's quite an interesting record of our times. All these comic artists that you're talking to, they're very heavy thinkers. It's quite an archive of work that you've created." -- David Collier
