Spurgeon and Butcher on TCAF and More -- Two of my favourite writers about comics join forces to promote this coming weekend's Toronto Comic Art Festival (which I am beyond bummed out about not being able to attend, damn it) and talk about lots of other stuff, including The Greatest Comic Shop in the World, The Beguiling, as well as Butcher's dead-brilliant solution to the sexism and misogyny rampant in corporate comics today.

Tom Spurgeon Interviews Christopher Butcher.

This is one of the best interviews I've read all year, and I hope you've already clicked over and aren't even reading my babbling anymore. But if you are, I'll just finish by saying I wish to hell I had known Butcher needed a Zuda San Diego party invite, because for some strange reason I had one and had zero use for it. I would have overnighted it to him, I swear to God. It's the least I could have done to repay him for the hospitality and kindness he showed me when I visited Toronto back in 2005.

If there's any way at all you can get to TCAF this weekend, I urge you to do so. It's everything about a comic book festival done right, by people who actually have good ideas about how the industry and artform need to be stewarded. Have a blast, everybody.
