Gahan Wilson Interview

Cartoonist Gahan Wilson is interviewed for by Richard Gehr.

RICHARD GEHR: What sparked your interest in cartooning?

GAHAN WILSON: When I was eight or nine, I was browsing through the books section of a second-hand store and I saw this set of bound volumes of Punch. I bought one of the volumes for fifteen cents and took it home. After pleading with my father, he very sweetly drove me back to the place and plopped down for the entire set, bless his heart. I can’t say how important that was.

This is a wonderful, career-spanning interview, with one of the great gag cartoonists.
