Brief Encounter

I recently interviewed Alejandro Jodorowsky for the Comics Journal dot com; you can read it here. I liked how it turned out a lot, but what remains to be seen in English is a really detailed, exhaustive conversation with Jodorowsky -- maybe not something he'd even be interested in, I don't know -- preferably conducted by someone fluent in Spanish and culled from an afternoon encounter with the breadth of the man's work laid out. He's a truly unique presence, a high-profile participant of over four decades' experience in 'mainstream'-tuned comics nonetheless spun from a particular, holistic, fecund approach to creation and a uniquely personal means of collaboration. This needn't involve whacking open the Whys of art, by the way; there's deep narrative history around, from a man both inside and outside at once. I hope to see it someday.
