In which I talk to Tim Young about theatre & comics(for those that don't know, I came to comics via theatre, which was where my real training was), and then as I normally do, tangent off into comics storytelling issues, and where I think cartoonists mess up in relying too much on film as an influence.
No doubt some of the things I say about Don McGregor and Scott McCloud are unfair, but I also have some nice things to say about Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman & P. Craig Russell, so I guess it balances out. Personally, I think I sound ridiculous whenever I'm interviewed and hate the sound of my recorded voice, but for what my opinions are worth--here, enjoy!
