Gary Groth on the State of Comics

Gary Groth is one of the most influential people in comics today. He's also someone who's as hated as he is loved, and the man wouldn't have it any other way. (Which admittedly, is part of why some of us love him so). He's been at the helm of Fantagraphics and The Comics Journal for decades and as part of the redesign/relaunch of the Comicbook Resources homepage, I spoke with him about Fantagraphics and the comics industry more generally, so we talk about the death of the pamphlet, reprinting old comic strips, handing off the Comics Journal to Dan Nadel and Tim Hodler, the DC relaunch and other topics. It was a lot of fun and I made him laugh a few times. Also he confirmed that Pogo will be coming out this fall.
