Maurice Sendak on Children, Childhood, and Death; Unedited and Uncensored

so long and thanks for all the fish

When news of Maurice Sendak’s death spread earlier this week, the video most often linked (and for good reason) was a recent interview he’d done with Stephen Colbert. Last night the Colbert Report kindly aired several previously unseen clips from the segment that were edited out. They’re pretty special.

(If anybody finds a video for international folks, please leave it in the comments.)

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
