Triangle interview with Scott McCloud

The Triangle, a publication of Drexel University, interviews artist Scott McCloud. First, here's a good part:
The Triangle: What influenced you to pursue a career in comics, and how did you get interested in comics in the first place?

Scott McCloud: I wasn't interested in comics as a little kid, but I had a friend in junior high school named Kurt Busiek, who is also making comics professionally today. Back in junior high, he kept telling me I should check out some of his collection, and eventually it wore down my resistance, and I started reading them. It was less than a year after that that I decided I wanted to draw comics professionally.
Wow, so he knew Kurt Busiek in his youth. That's impressive.

On the other hand, I must, well, partially disagree with him on the following:
s: How would you say that comic books and the comic medium have changed since you got started? And do you think it has evolved for the better?

SM: I think it has evolved for the better, and I'm very optimistic about the future. Comics is in great shape now, probably better than it has ever been, and I hope that it continues to grow into the future.
While I also hope that comics grow in the future, with the immoralities running rampant in comics today, I can say that any such dreams could end up remaining very far away. That's why I think it'd be a good idea for McCloud to bear that in mind regardless of his own positions.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
