Over at ARTnews: The art of comics.

Hey Folks:

If you’re into art and you’re into comics, check out this month’s ARTnews. I have a cover story on the growing overlap between the worlds of fine art and comic books, featuring established talents such as Gary Panter, Chris Ware and Daniel Clowes (that’s his illustration above) — among many others.

You can find the story online. But if you want to see it with all its graphic goodness, be sure to pick up the October issue of the magazine.
