CANAR: The Russ Heath Interview

Dave Sim contributed to all 32 issues of CANAR (Comic Art News And Reviews) published by John Balge (1954-2014) between September 1972 and April 1976. Balge had got to know the sixteen year old Dave Sim through Harry Kremer’s Now & Then Books comic shop in Kitchener, Ontario. Balge, Sim and Kremer travelled together to comics conventions in the US and Canada interviewing many prominent comic creators of the day, making the back issues of CANAR a treasure trove of interviews with the likes of Will Eisner, Russ Heath, Harvey Kurtzman, Barry Windsor-Smith, Mike Kaluta, Gil Kane, Berni Wrightson, Howard Chaykin and others.

Wow! Please keep these reprints coming, Tim, for us original-CANAR-copies-challenged folks.

If this is a taste of what the Dave Sim Archive will eventually become, then count me in, Dave.

But, then, you already sorta knew *that*, right?

So the secret is "knowing how to draw"? Huh! Who'da thunk?
