Modern Masters, Volume 20: Kyle Baker by Eric Nolen-Weathington
- Kyle Baker may well be the funniest man in comics. With books like The
Cowboy Wally Show, Why I Hate Saturn, Plastic Man, and The
Bakers on his resume, along with four (of his eight) Eisner Awards in the
"Best Writer/Artist Humor" category, it's hard to argue against him. But he does serious, too — and you can't get much more serious than Nat Turner.
He is the all-around cartoonist — he can write, pencil, ink, and color with the best of them. His work has appeared in such diverse publications as
The New York Times, Esquire, Rolling Stone, and Mad.
- Without question, Kyle Baker is a Modern Master, and this book presents a career-spanning interview and discussion of his creative process, plus plenty of rare and unseen art, including an 8-page color section, and a gallery of commissioned work!
