I’m going back-to-back in the Comics Journal this spring. Following the preview of Drawing Words & Writing Pictures in #289, the new issue features a career-spanning interview with me conducted by poet/cartoonist Gary Sullivan. TCJ has posted a brief excerpt on their website. You can read it here.
Some of the work we discuss:
“Off the Road” from Terrifying Steamboat Stories #3
Sayonara and other Mexico City tales
99 Ways to Tell a Story: Exercises in Style
“U.S. Post Modern Office Homes, Inc.” from Rosetta #2
(and here’s a nice compliment I just found in the Booklist review of that anthology: “an American worthy of greater recognition is Matt Madden, whose story of workplace life is formally rigorous and narratively lucid.”)
