Dan Clowes is one of my favorite cartoonists (or is that "graphic novelist?") There's precision and realism in his frames that I find really pleasing. And he creates good characters too. (His new book, Ice Haven, is about a town filled with many odd characters, though it's based on the Leopold and Loeb murder case.) Clowes talks to NPR about his new film Art School Confidential, which will be released this fall.
