Almost Gone! By Dr. Sheena C. Howard, Ben Passmore, Antoine Cossé, Tomi Ungerer, Gary Groth et al. The Comics Journal, renowned for its in-depth interviews, criticism, and thought-provoking editorials, features Gary Groth in frank and often hilarious discussion with the satirist and children’s book author Tomi Ungerer. Ungerer talks about his life and career: growing up in France during the Nazi occupation, creating controversial work, being blacklisted as a children’s book author. First new issue in its new twice-a-year format. Also quite a few other features, including the “new mainstream” in American comics — how the marketplace and overall perception of the medium has drastically shifted since the “graphic novel boom” of the early 2000s and massive hits like Persepolis, Fun Home, and Smile.
