I finally sent my fashion book off to the printer, so I celebrated by…drawing something I wish I could have put in it. Oh well.

This mini, Family Feud, 2012, was initially inspired by something I read Art Spiegelman say in an interview. By the time I drew it, I’d forgot exactly what he said. I remembered it differently. I was thinking about it again recently and I found it online. He said:

Well, it’s not just in Family Feud where you’re rewarded for knowing what people know. In life, you have to know what people expect you to know. Otherwise, you end up in the nut house. Now, it’s easy, because I’ve had practice at it. But, when I was twenty, I’d had no practice whatsoever. I wasn’t aware of the conventions, and that was a problem.

Possibly it’s in a different interview, but I misremembered it as being something like: “If the Family Feud prompt is ‘objects in your fridge’, you might have batteries in your refrigerator, but you have to say ‘milk’ because that’s going to be the ‘correct’ answer. In life, in order to fit in, you have to learn to provide the most common answer, not the answer that is true to you.

 Sometimes I feel like the only reason you are being given to care about the characters in these comics is because other characters do, and the whole thing can feel like being at a party where you are witnessing conversations between people you don’t know as they talk about other people you don’t know, feeling stuck while you wait for a friend to arrive.

Back before I had my Damascene conversion about Jaime’s work, I wrote a scathing review of Locas for The Comics Journal. (Laugh in the face of anyone who ever tells you that publication, online or in print, is a Fantagraphics mouthpiece.) I wrote something very similar, the sense that if you don’t cotton to Maggie and Hopey immediately, there’s something about not just the reception of the work by its fans but about the work itself that feels exclusionary. Really interesting phenomenon, and ultimately I would guess it’s a testament to Jaime’s ability to capture the way scenes and cliques form, and feel.
The title pages are indeed tremendous, too, yeah.
