Interview: David Boswell

The creator of Reid Fleming, The World's Toughest Milkman, David Boswell, is interviewed by Tom Hawthorn in The Globe and Mail.

David Boswell will be inducted into the Canadian Cartoonists Hall of Fame during the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

Reid Fleming has been around since 1978. He's an angry guy; a symbol for all the put-upon working masses. The character is
"... a misanthropic purveyor of dairy products, a rye-swilling, fist-waving, milk-truck-crashing trouble-maker who insists, 'I am not bald! I get my hair cut this way.'

"Fleming is the antihero of an epic series of illustrated tales written by David Boswell, a Vancouver artist who has laboured for decades in near-obscurity and near-penury"

The rest of the interview is here.

There will be two hardbound volume collecting the series, the first to be out later this year.
