Matthew Reidsma Interviews Marek Bennett

Nice interview between two talented cartoonists: Matthew Reidsma (High Maintenance Machine) and Marek Bennett (Mimi's Doughnuts):

I love Marek's regular strip, Mimi's Doughnuts, for a lot of reasons: Shayna reminds me a little bit of everyone I know; she's idealistic, but doesn't always have the willpower to stick to it. She struggles with personal issues that shed light on bigger problems; she talks about global and political issues in a way that even kids can understand. She's just so REAL, that sometimes I'm amazed that Mimi's Doughnuts isn't an autobio strip.
