Author looking the most like he has a fake moustache. (But also the author of the best travelogue ever, called The Rings of Saturn. It made me want to pack my back, and travel in solitude along the British east coast. Its beauty made me shiver.)
I recently rediscovered the wonderful Joe Matt, the American comic artist who made honest books about his life as a porn-obsessed neurotic loser. The Anthology ‘Peep Show’ is really amazing (short single page comics, reminding me of Robert Crumb, which he also confesses in the book itself), but his longer graphic novels ‘Spent’, ‘Fair Weather’ and ‘The Poor Bastard’ are also really amazing. He hasn’t made anything new since 2007, unfortunately. I really hope one day he’ll find the productivity needed to finish another album. On the last image, you’ll also see Chester Brown and Seth, his friends.
Let’s not write for the money. Let’s write for the boy in the well.
