‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Villain Oogie Boogie Caused a Major Creative Clash with Tim Burton

It’s that magical time of year when people needlessly argue about whether or not The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie. The democratic answer is that it’s both and everyone should just enjoy it. The correct answer is that it’s a Christmas movie, because 95% of it takes place after Halloween and leading up to Christmas. These are facts. But there’s another argument surrounding The Nightmare Before Christmas that you might not have heard about. The film’s writer...

October 8th, cartoonists, and mortality - reflections on Pekar and Thompson

October 8th is the birthday of the two cartoonists I'm most closely professionally associated with... and they've both passed away. Bah. But I'm glad to have known both Richard Thompson (1957-2016) and Harvey Pekar (1939-1970), even if it was for too short a time. I was reminded of this odd coincidence today when Amy Thompson returned Richard's copy of the book I'd edited about Pekar to me. Talk about regifting... I met Harvey in 2005 when I was called in to sub...
