Monday Runaround – Bats, Bobby Pins And Box Office

MotherWatch: Alison Bechdel talks to Salon about Are You My Mother?

You know, I can't even think about that. Whenever I do interviews I just have to assume that she's not going to see them.

A large part of why Parker thought it would be worthwhile to hang on to the comic book gig was that it might allow her to eventually take over Amanda's books from Janet. While it wouldn't exactly be the same as starting a literary legacy on her own, she could see the franchise into its maturity. Was it better to edit the first three books in the Harry Potter series or the last four? James Ellroy started out writing dime novels, and while his first editor had bragging rights for discovery, it's the guy who saw the genius of the author's Los Angeles books who will really have something to tell his grandkids and grad students about. And if Dave Sim had consistently used editors for the three hundred issues of his Cerebus comic book series, she could have been the gal who was there in the first couple of years when the book was terrible, or she could've been the one who was shepherding the genius of the middle years. Of course, then one would also risk the residual stink of guano in the final period when the book got bat-shit crazy.
