Based on the list of cartoonists and artists interviewed in Dangerous Drawings, you know it's bound to be a great book. But as you pour through the discussions, you'll realize that it's far more than that. The questions posed by RE/Search Books cofounder Andrea Juno are always insightful, and relatively few punches are pulled. The 14 comix and graphix artists interviewed--including Art Spiegelman, Dan Clowes, Julie Doucet, Chris Ware, Diane Noomin, Chester Brown, Ted Rall, and Phoebe Gloeckner--offer extremely personal revelations about art and life. Taken together, the thoughts of these artists form an interesting singular commentary on the state of comics and graphic literature: by using a popular art form that, for the most part, remains outside of the establishment's critical eye, these cartoonists are able to deliver potent, highly charged, personal work.
