Exclusive Interview: Heart Of Darkness Writer / Artist Peter Kuper


When not writing and drawing Spy Vs. Spy for Mad Magazine or cartoons for The New Yorker, writer and artist Peter Kuper has done graphic novel adaptations of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Now he’s turned his eye, and his pen, towards Joseph Conrad’s controversial novella, Heart of Darkness. In the following email interview, Kuper discusses how he came to write and draw Heart Of Darkness (hardcover, Kindle), and how he adapted this racist story without losing its meaning.
