I really enjoyed doing this interview with Igort. The conversation was full of many great insights with a lot of material covered. Like many of his contemporaries, only a handful of his work is available in English. I first got into his work with the drawn and quarterly collection, 5 is the Perfect Number. More recently, you can find him in the Ignatz series, Baobab. Igort is also the editor of the Ignatz line of comics. His latest work, is a series of books on the Ukraine and Russia. You can read what has been translated so far, here.

    A serious question, though it might offend some sensibilities: I remember looking at a copy of 5 Is The Perfect Number and thinking it looked great, didn’t buy it at the time, but I think back on that decision on occasion. However, I pretty much do not like European comics, the way they read. Mattotti’s Fires would be a good example of something I couldn’t read at all, although Stigmata looks pretty good. I have problems with the likes of Bilal and Moebius much like I have trouble with David B and Trondheim, although they’re different problems. Would I like Igort?
