Bill Amend interview about new Foxtrot collection

Universal Uclick editor John Glynn offers a serious but mostly not-so serious interview with Foxtrot creator Bill Amend regarding his newly released collection “The Best of FoxTrot

Did you ever consider letting newspapers run reruns of the dailies?

Not really. I owed a lot of FoxTrot’s newspaper success to the retirements over the years of Bloom County, The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes. Seemed appropriate to return the space to the cartooning pool once I was done with it. Books and the web are great for rereading old material. Newspapers should be for new stuff.

Well done, Mr. Amend! I know you put a lot of time into this book collection and I’m sure it will be fabulous! I hope you’ve included all of your full-color SLUG MAN comics! And a special thanks for making room on the comics pages for new strips! I know I benefitted from that in a big way! Thanks!
