Interview: Eric Wight

Eva Volin

On Sunday, May 8th, while attending the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, I ran around to as many of my favorite kids comics creators as I could and asked them all the exact same questions.  Keep in mind, conventions are crazy loud and crazy busy, so there is a lot of background noise.  Let me know [...]

In 2004 documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock went on a diet of nothing but McDonald’s for one month. His film “Super Size Me” (which can be seen on his website) followed his health during that month and took a scathing look at America’s fast-food culture and industry.
