Our first interview in Los Angeles found us making our way to the home of Jordan Crane. I’ve talked to Jordan a couple of times in the past and always enjoy the enthusiasm and energy he brings to the conversation. The anthology that he edited in the late 90/early 2000’s, Non, was a groundbreaking and important work, with the 5 book being a touchstone of things to come in comics. His current series for fantagraphics, Uptight continues his excellent comics stories. It’s been a number of years since his last issue, but he will have a new one out in the fall. Jordan also runs the excellent comics site, What Things Do, featuring many of my favorite cartoonists.
