Art’s Not Smart


There’s a long article in this week’s New York Observer about cartoonist Art Spiegelman and his split from the New Yorker. Spiegelman is apparently preoccupied with producing a new comic strip, In the Shadow of No Towers, which he is quoted as describing as follows:

“Recollections of September 11, 2001, and the feeling of imminent death that it brought with it seen from further and further spiraling distances as we move towards a present where we’re equally threatened by Al Qaeda and my President.”

No further comment necessary.
