My latest is up here:
In 1999, I interviewed and wrote about Maxon Crumb (“Alone in the Western World,” The Comics Journal #217. Reprinted in Levin. Outlaws, Rebels… 2008). He was, I still say, the strangest person I ever met. When I was asked to review Malcolm Whyte’s illustrated biography of Maxon, Art Out of Chaos (F.U. Press. 2018), I said I would if I could interview him again. We’d had no contact since he’d come to a reading of mine for Outlaws, and I wondered how time had treated him. (I knew it had changed me, and I wondered if that those changes included my characterological assessment.) But Whyte said Maxon no longer communicated with him and could be contacted only through a nephew in Colorado. I e-mailed the nephew but did not hear from Maxon.
