Holy Cardinal, It's Art Spiegelman

Went to the Wesleyan - Williams FB game today in a N'oreaster. Left at halftime where the Ephs had a sizeable lead (we won, 33-13, go Ephs!) to see Art Spiegelman in the chapel. Wow, what a great lecture. He raced through the history of comix, with lots of educated comments about his and others' work. Borat Cohen on satire was the next lecturer in another building, but most of stayed well past Art's scheduled ending and missed Borat.

Art won the Pulitzer prize for his comic Maus.
