I enjoyed this candid interview with the legendary Francoise Mouly about her new Toon Books line for little kiddies (and which are beautifully designed by MOME's Jonathan Bennett, which is why Jonathan has missed the last few issues). I particularly enjoyed this part:
MOULY: "'If you really want to work for us,' says the head of Scholastic, 'You could help us do the comic book version of Shrek 2.'" (laughs)
Q: And of course you jumped at that.
A: You have Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly in your office and they're begging to be in your employ so of course you find them the perfect thing. The comic book adaptation of the movie which is a sequel of an adaptation of a book by a cartoonist? Yes, of course, we're going to jump on that.
