Item description for Art Spiegelman: Conversations (Conversations With Comic Artists) by Joseph Witek...

When the graphic novel Maus: A Survivor's Tale won a Special Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for its vivid depiction of the Holocaust and its effects, critics and mainstream audiences recognized that a comic book was capable of exploring complex aesthetic, moral, and cultural themes. Maus's creator Art Spiegelman (b. 1948) became the most famous alternative cartoonist in America.

Art Spiegelman: Conversations reveals an artist who had long been working to establish comics as a serious art form. With his wife Franoise Mouly, he founded and edited RAW magazine---the most influential showcase for avant-garde comics in America---which published early work by such now well-established cartoonists as Chris Ware, Kaz, and Gary Panter. Spiegelman's essays and lectures helped to establish that comics have a history and a canon.

This collection of interviews and profiles spans 1976-2006 and covers Spiegelman's career as an artist, critic, educator, and art historian. Among three previously unpublished interviews, one conducted by the volume's editor discusses themes rarely touched upon in earlier profiles.
