    Suzanne, Mistress of Wurzeltod, has a nifty interview with Dan Clowes from this year’s Fumetto 2011 in Luzern, Switzerland:

    “like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron” was one of the most provocative graphic series I have ever read. Early on he was selling the original panels for some crazy low price. I could kick myself for not doing it. THe art work and story line were absolutely mesmerizing…like remembered dreams.

    And I guess, “Art School Confidential” was kinda fun too.

    I’m wondering just how surreal this gets?

    Clowes is a great observer of human behaviour, but what really does it for me is the vague and dreamlike mystery that hangs over some of his stories. ‘David Boring’ has the best balance of real life and surrealism.

    Clowes is probably my favorite in the graphic novel arena. I can’t think of a single thing he’s done that I haven’t liked. Most of my friends think it’s blasphemous, but I like his stuff better than Chris Ware and Harvey Pekar. Don’t get me wrong, I like them. But something about Clowes’ characters and stories strike a beautiful, dissonant, resonant chord with me.

    I 100% agree with this review. Mister Wonderful was an absolutely fantastic read. Clowes is the greatest living comic book writer/artist.

    What the bleep is the attraction of cartoons about people you’d run from if you met them in real life?

    This plot precis makes it sound as if he’s riffing on the blind date from Ghost World, doesn’t it?
