Marjane Satrapi was on the Today Show yesterday morning (this link should take you to the video). And yes, I will review Persepolis as soon as life stops with the crazy.
(She was also on The Colbert Report the other week. I can’t recall if I’ve seen another female comic book creator interviewed on TV before this, although I think it’s possible I’ve seen clips with Trina Robbins.)
There are a bunch of news stories floating around about this (and I think I’m about two months late on it anyway, but news to me), but in the lead up to The Dark Knight, there will be a DVD of six animated shorts from various Japanese animation studios. Satoshi Kon is reportedly directing one which delights me to no end.
