Chris Wright


It’s a return for Chris Wright, starting 2013 off with a strong start. His latest book is Black Lung from Fantagraphics. Chris has an amazing unique style that works really far in this work.

    That Comic Cast podcast from Ireland by those two jolly Irishmen, Craig and Liam, is a lot of fun to listen to. Instuds is pretty dry and monotonous in comparison. If comix isn’t about youthful wackiness and enthusiasm, what is it about? Just another angsty, self-important bourgeois time-waster, if you ask me.

    I have to wonder about Canadians…

      I love the show. As an artist, I find it inspirational. Robins interview skills and choices of guests and subjects are excellent. There is passion there.

    btw, youthful wackiness is overrated. I prefer insight and thoughtfulness. I can also live without yet another comic podcast with a mostly mainstream focus.

    Friend, you are laboring under some serious misapprehensions abut this art form.

    I don’t know what podcast you people listen to. I find inkstuds to be an adequate amount of wackiness mixed with an insanity of awesome.

    Anyways. Blacklung is seeerrrrious comics. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone talk about this book yet that has hit on why this book worked for me so well. It is so bleak and literate. I felt the same way reading it that I did when I read Blood Meridian, Heart of Darkness, or Moby Dick. Or listening to Nick Cave. Or watching the Proposition. This comic was kind of what the Proposition hints at but doesn’t quite hit. I loved it. The highlight of the book for me was the discussion of sin toward the back of the book. Some of the best art in that section as well. I didn’t know what to expect because Fantagraphics sometimes can be a little too one thing for me, and that one thing is boring to me–but this was not that.

    Both interviews with Chris Wright were excellent, and I think they do a better job of preparing you for the book than anything I’ve seen elsewhere.

    I would love to see an Inkstuds Chris Wright video interview.
    Thank you for another awesome interview.
