Comics

Daniel Clowes Talks Confidential. By Jason Silverman, Wired News. WN: Has there been any progress for literary comics in the 20 years that you've been writing?

Clowes: It's hard to see it objectively. The news articles that have been written about me have changed. It used to always start, "The bang-zoom comics aren't just for kids anymore." … The shift came when (journalists) didn't have to put me in the context of a world that they figured nobody understood.

...WN: Do you read comics online?

Clowes: I don't read much of anything online. It's not an enjoyable experience for me to read something with light projected through it. I like to read comics sitting down, looking at this piece of paper that can't do anything else.
