Scott McCloud (Standard American accent)

My name is Scott McCloud. I’m an American cartoonist and author and my new graphic novel is The Sculptor, it’s a nearly 500-page story about art and love and death and a whole lot of other big ideas! It’s... it’s, I hope, moving, but it’s... it’s also very funny and it has a lot of big ideas but a lot of small moments as well. I wanted to tell a story that was engaging. I wanted... I guess, above all, I wanted to give people a page-turner, something that compelled the reader to keep moving forward. I’ve been known for most of my career for writing books about comics, I felt that it was high time I simply told a story, and that’s what I’ve set out to do.
