Jules Feiffer Interviewed
Podcasting is a great medium for the interview. I've been listening tonight to Bob Andelman's Mr. Media long engrossing interview with Jules Feiffer (born January 26, 1929) who has a new book out from Fantagraphics. Bob has a very interesting talk with Feiffer on comic books , Will Eisner, politics past and present, his Village Voice strips, Calvin & Hobbes, the craft of writing, Hollywood, Popeye, the Spirit, and the writing of memoirs. The podcast can be found at Mr. Media Interviews HERE. Feiffer's The Great Comic Book Heroes is still the funniest book on the working lives of cartoonists at the low end of the scale that has ever been published.
