"Outside the Box" book cover.

“Outside the Box: Interviews with Contemporary Cartoonists” by Hillary L. Chute (University of Chicago) lets readers listen in on lively conversations between 12 leading cartoonists and a knowledgeable fan. Chute, a comics scholar who teaches at the University of Chicago, covers some of the subjects that are in her 2010 book, “Graphic Women.” But this new one is more fun to read. Her “Outside” interviews include Alison Bechdel, Scott McCloud, Joe Sacco, Art Spiegelman, and Chris Ware. Each talks about how he or she fell in love with comics, their first big breaks, and the sometimes tricky balance between life and art.
