Love and Rats

A couple weeks ago, I interviewed Fantagraphics Books co-founder Gary Groth.
He talked about convincing the Hernandez Brothers into letting him publish “Love and Rockets” — they agreed pretty easily, apparently — whatever happened to the Comics Journal — it still comes out, in book form every other year — and why he’s excited about an upcoming release, “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters,” by Emile Ferris.
You can read that interview I wrote for the books section of last Sunday’s The Gazette here.
Meanwhile, in this week’s “Slipped,” Cartier Tour has legged it, and the Chancellor, now growth to an immense size, reveals to the Scarlet Sparrow his master plan — he believes his scientists have perfected their genetic formula and he’s used it on other Rongeur. He’s created a battalion of giant, angry rats.
And they’re howling for a taste of Tyler.
Please take a look at chapter 373 of “Slipped,” the adventure comic strip.
