Aaron McGruder interviewed about Boondocks television show

The A.V. Club has a good interview with Boondocks creator, Aaron McGruder about taking his comic strip to the small screen. Some of the questions he answers go into the process of taking his strip into television, American politics and government and handling the public eye.

AVC: Do you feel like the comic strip is a dying art form?

AM: Yeah, I’ve always felt that way. I felt that way when I got in it, and I was fortunate that I was able to get in before it died. But I do think comics are a dying art form because newspapers are a dying medium. But it’s not to say that in the next generation, where there’s people getting their news electronically, comics won’t survive. Right now, they’re still largely attached to the newspaper world. And the more they can break away from that, the more they have a chance to live on.
