A COMICA REVIEW BY:

PEGGY BURNS


Peggy Burns is the Associate Publisher of Drawn & Quarterly, the Canadian-based publisher of quality comics. The following article appeared on the D&Q Blog.

Paul Gravett Rules!

Paul Gravett is the Director of Comica in London at the ICA. I had the pleasure of meeting Paul a few years ago at SPX, and he is a delight—not to mention he has great taste in comics. (He wrote the introductions for both our Dupuy & Berberian books, Get a Life and Maybe Later.)

Just take a look at his 2006 Comica line-up next month. What I wouldn’t do to see Moomin Memoirs, hear Guy Delisle speak, and read the comics-themed Sunday Independent (well that’s probably the one thing I can do!) The special issue of the Independent will preview Pyongyang (Jonathan Cape is publishing Guy’s books in the UK this Fall) but the paper will serialize the UNEDITED and UNCENSORED version of Chris Ware’s Building Stories. UNCENSORED—I didn’t even know that existed!
