My special guest tonight is Pulitzer Prize-winning comic artist, editor and advocate for the medium ART SPIEGELMAN. His new book BREAKDOWNS: PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG %@ &**! (I have paraphrased that) is both a reprinting of his seminal 1970s work in which he began to experiment with the possibilities of comics AND a complex and entertaining autobiography. Tune in and hear about Art Spiegelman’s early days in “head comics”, his epiphony of Basil Wolverton, and what zipatone can mean to a budding artist.
