Publisher's Summary

In this hour, comic books used to be for kids. Now graphic novels are one of the most popular new forms of literature. Cartoonist Jules Feiffer started on his path to fame in the 1950s with a cartoon strip for The Village Voice that eventually won him a Pulitzer Prize. He talks with Steve Paulson about his memoir Backing into Forward and how comic books were one of his greatest escapes as a kid

Next, not all illustrators agree on what to call graphic novels or when the first one appeared, but most agree that the man who brought them into the mainstream was Will Eisner. Michael Schumacher recently published a biography of Eisner called A Dreams's Life in Comics and tells Jim Fleming Eisner always believed in the literary potential of sequential art.

Then, Denis Kitchen founded Kitchen Sink Press in 1969, and he was the publisher who brought Eisner's work to the public. He is also an illustrator and has published some of his early work in The Oddly Compelling Art of Denis Kitchen. He tells Anne Strainchamps about his drawings and his music.

And finally, R. Crumb is widely known as the author of Mr Natural, and The Book of Genesis. His latest project is a compilation of his daughter's drawings called Sophie Crumb: Evolution of a Crazy Artist. Robert Crumb and Sophie Crumb tell Steve Paulson about her development and work.
