Comments In the Studio: Visits with Contemporary Cartoonists

  • Jeff Jackson

    Worthwhile insights into process from luminaries like Jaime Hernandez, Gary Panter, Charles Burns, Chris Ware, Robert Crumb, and more. But the most illuminating sections feature these cartoonists talking about the far-flung work that's inspired them - old newspaper dailies, underground comix, weird superheroes, alternative manga, contemporary graphic novels, painters, book designers, toy makers, and much more.


  • Dominick

    This is a fascinating collection. Rather than being conventional interviews, these pieces consist of commentaries by the artists themselves--Crumb, Spiegelman, Panter, Burns, Seth, Ware, Clowes, Brunetti, and Jaime Hernandez--on their work and influences, profusely illustrated with their art (finished, original, and in some cases everything down to the merest doodles) and with images of many of their key influences, so we learn about what has informed their work as well as about what they do. Th [...]

    Some good interviews with the various artists, and I love seeing what influenced them. The most annoying part was the introductions for each guy. The author came off as pretentious. We get it dude you have a good vocabulary.


  • Scott Longo

    Really learned a lot from this book. At least it felt like I did. Each artist manages to convey their personality, their work, their world, through a collection of anecdotal quotes. Most of the text is concerned with outlining a personal history or explaining various influences. It's really pretty cool to see that kind of casual interview-type format all mushed together and distilled. So much of the conversational filler is completely removed. The book almost reads like a comic in that sense. Al [...]


  • Brian

    Four of the many good things about this book:1) Art Spiegelman talks about being inspired by the amazing Boris Artzybasheff (longtime TIME cover artist).2) Chris Ware talks about the scary cartoon that hung in his grandfather's basement throughout CW's childhood.3) Charles Burns talks about his father's hobby of clipping and collecting cartoon faces.4) Daniel Clowes talks about being inspired by a weird self-published Christian comic called "Doctor Peculiar."You get to see pictures of all this s [...]

    I've had this book for a number of years and I've continually looked back through it. It's a very well put together book. I think what I enjoyed about it the most is that it seems to go beyond just asking simple questions and has the artist showing you things that are important to them beyond comics, or even art in general. It's always amazing to see into the mind of someone you admire. This book has the feel of stepping inside someone's brain to see how their thoughts and experiences are organi [...]


  • Scott Radtke

    I liked this book somewhat more than the 3 stars I gave it. I'm always intrigued by the thoughts behind the art but this book didn't go quite deep enough. Some of the artists included were not my favorites and were all of a generation with the exception of R. Crumb, and Art Spiegleman who've already generated a ton of information and whose best work is, frankly, behind them. As an artist myself, I also wanted to know how they artists create their work - what materials they use etc. - which was o [...]


  • Linda

    Superb. Extensive, colorful interviews with the most creative comic writers/artists out there now, several from Chicago: Crumb, Seth, Clowes, Ware, Panter, Burns, Brunetti, Hernandez. See their favorite album covers, the films and comics that inspired them, who they swipe from. What struck me is how eloquent and keenly intelligent these artists are. This book is bursting with color and life. This is worth buying, not just checking out of the library.


  • Liz

    this book provides you, the fan, with the thrill of paging through your favorite comic artist's actual points of visual reference and influence provided that favorite is one of the men listed. or Gary Panter, who just features his own sketches, past works, and a narration that makes me think that he was just mumbling to himself.


  • Peter

    Really lovely collection of anecdotes, influences, doodles and reproductions from some of the top dogs of underground comics. In their own words but obviously masterfully edited. A pleasure and inspiration to read.


  • Harry

    Some interesting stuff in this book, although overall I didn't find it as insightful as I hoped. The introductions to the artists' work are a bit too scholarly, almost trying too hard to legitimize comics as an artform.


  • Scott Lapierre

    Somehow not as good or eye-opening as it could have been. I feel like the interviewer didn't ask quite the right questions or really dig or something. something's missing.


  • Lily

    That was a book I had to read for a school assignment but I just loved it. I was so interesting and I really want to know more about Art Spiegelman, Robert Crumb and Gary Panter.


  • Bill Hsu

    Really enjoyed the chapters on Crumb, Spiegelman, Panter, Hernandez, Burns, Clowes, not so much the rest. I don't get Brunetti's work at all, sorry.
