The author of Maus, Art Spiegelman, has a new graphic novel out called In the Shadow of No Towers. The New York Times interviews him about it. The interview's not too enlightening, but it's a quick read.

This character — me — got so shaken up. I think like a typical American who can get narcotized by the mass media. For me, politics was always put in a strange box, sort of like "baseball for nerds." But since Sept. 11, that bubble has burst.

Thanks, BoingBoing.
