I’ve just been reading an interview with cartoonist Lynda Barry on Salon.com. I found her comics while browsing some other stuff there, and I’m hooked. How did I miss her all these years? She’s friends with Matt Groening of Life in Hell and The Simpson’s fame, if that tells you anything.
Anyway, I find myself drawn not only to her acerbic humor in the comics, but her writing as well. She’s got a lot of good things to say. A lot of really cynical things to say, too, but hey. This interview is especially thought-provoking, especially her comments about life in junior high school. Ouch.
DH and I are going out to lunch and to a used book sale with our friend Amy. I’d better scoot. I just had to mention Lynda Barry before I forgot.
