Where I write: Craig Thompson on the art of the graphic novel

There’s no evidence of pain as he pulls out a brush and talks about  using India ink because it’s part of the old-school comics tradition  that goes back to Milton Caniff and “Terry and the Pirates.” He’s  interested in the purity of ink on paper, not color or texture or other  painterly concerns, and with a few brush strokes he brings Dodola to  life in a full-page portrait.
