Panels & Pixels & Chat & Chew

A few months ago I talked on the phone with Chris Mautner, the noted nice guy, comics afficianado & critic who also works at an honest to god actual newspaper, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg PA. He must've taken notes or something because the whole thing has been posted on his comics blog, Panels and Pixels, which is right here.

Warning: the piece opens with a frightening photo of some unfocused-looking individual who's a dead ringer for whoever it was posed for my high school yearbook photo. Except his hair was even worse. To make the trip to the site worthwhile take a look at Chris's earlier interview with Jules Feiffer, and his current one with Darrin Bell, the genius who draws Candorville.

"Little digbats"? Are those like dingbats, only nastier?

Or are digbats the nocturnal creatures that hang upside down underneath the ground in tunnels?

Sad, sad world without spelling.

Richard, your book is being offered as an Advance Reading Copy to members of librarything. I've put my request in. Everyone who gets a copy has to write a review.

Oops, "winegarten".

And oops, "dingbats". I don't spell too well over the phone.

And Abbot; cool! I'd never seen that site! I hope the reviews are good.
