Marvel Monsters and Monkey Kings make mayhem in COMICS JOURNAL #284! Gary Groth interviews cartoonist Roger Langridge, creator of a rogue's gallery of characters such as Fred the Clown, Art d'Ecco, and Knuckles the Malevolent Nun. The New Zealand native will also talk about his collaborative work, such as his recent turn as the artist for Marvel's Fin Fang Foom. Also interviewed is Xeric-winner Gene Yang, whose young-adult graphic novel, American Born Chinese, was recently nominated for a National Book Award. From the turn of the 19th century, Frederick Burr Opper's comic strip Happy Hooligan — one of the inspirations for Chaplin's Little Tramp — is examined, complete with approximately 30 Sunday strips reproduced in full-color!
