Didn’t buy The Art of Richard Thompson? At least read the Thompson-Watterson interview…

If you didn’t buy The Art of Richard Thompson (and why didn’t you???), you can at least read the an excerpt from the interview between Cul de Sac creator Richard Thompson and Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson.

BW: I?ve changed my mind about things–I think comics have gotten too sophisticated for their own good! You should always feel a teeny twinge of embarrassment when you read a comic strip. If there?s not something a bit stupid or sleazy in it, you?re doing it wrong.

RT: ?Teeny twinge? of embarrassment is entirely too small; I prefer a full-on debilitating attack of shame with my comics.

BW: Says the guy who drew cartoons about Mozart and James Joyce!

Part one is over on Mike Rhode’s ComicsDC blog.

You can read my review of the book here or just take the leap and buy the book on Amazon.
