PETER KUPER: CONVERSATIONS. Ed. by Kent Worcester. University Press of Mississippi, Jackson, 2016. Conversations with Comic Artists. 240 pp. with 24 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781496808370 In English.
Publisher's description: Peter Kuper (b. 1958), one of America's leading cartoonists, has created work recognized around the world. His art has graced the pages and covers of numerous magazines and newspapers, including Time, Newsweek, the New Yorker, Harper's, Mother Jones, the Progressive, the Nation, and the New York Times. He is also a longtime contributor to Mad magazine, where he has been writing and drawing Spy vs. Spy for nearly two decades. He is the cofounder and coeditor of World War 3 Illustrated, the cutting-edge magazine devoted to political graphic art. Along with two dozen images, this volume features ten lively, informative interviews with Kuper, including a career-spanning lengthy new interview. The book also includes a quartet of revealing interviews with underground comix legends Robert Crumb and Vaughn Bode, Mad magazine publisher William Gaines, and Jack Kirby, co-creator of mainstream superheroes from the Avengers to the Fantastic Four. These interviews were conducted by Kuper and fellow artist Seth Tobocman in the early 1970s, when they were teenagers. Peter Kuper's graphic novels have explored the medium from comics journalism and autobiography to fiction and literary adaptations.
