relating to Speigelman

Preview of Art Speigelman’s upcoming comic (!) book about 9/11 and it’s aftermath:
“I saw heroism in being able to live in the present and a lightness of touch.” I gotta be working on that “lightness of touch” part. But maybe our muses know each other: “I wish I could do comics about “My Year in Provence,” or something. But so far it has been the painful realities that I can barely grasp that force me to the drawing table. I’m kind of hoping my next work will be a humorous bedroom farce about the amusing foibles of the upper middle class, intercut with succulent dessert recipes. Unfortunately, I seem to have a rather grotesque muse.”
