Blankets Of Charles Thompson

Suicide Girls interviews Craig Thompson, author of the illustrated novel, Blankets:

DRE: What made you call Blankets an Illustrated Novel? Are you not fond of the term graphic novel?

CT: I donít like it. Itís not that big of a deal because a lot of people have asked me about this and a lot of cartoonists get into arguments over it. I wasnít thinking too much but I just wanted to fiddle with peopleís preconceptions of the form and it seems to work. Almost all the sales have been in bookstores and a lot of the people I am talking to have never read comics before in their life. I think it probably helped that I had this enigmatic subtitle on it.
