Cute Boys Alert: Sophie Yanow interviews Simon Hanselmann

We forgot to mention this near its original point of publication, but Sophie Yanow spoke to Simon Hanselmann way back in early September, grabbing the scoop on the then forthcoming United States tour with fellow Cute Boys Michael DeForge and Patrick Kyle. Their conversation was posted at The Comics Journal, and it can be read here.

If you’ve followed any comics people on Twitter in the last month, then you know the tour was a success. Yet, read this interview anyway, and act like it’s still September 8th. When all was good.
