Leonard Lopate at Large: Mark Alan Stamaty

Today on Leonard Lopate at Large, Mark Alan Stamaty talks about the process of turning his beloved comic strip into a graphic novel that New York Review Books calls “a thrilling, surprising, unexpectedly moving ode to art, life, and New York City.”

Every week, from 1978–1979, The Village Voice brought a new installment of Mark Alan Stamaty’s uproarious, endlessly inventive strip “MacDoodle St.”

Centering more or less on Malcolm Frazzle, a blocked poet struggling to complete his latest lyric for Dishwasher Monthly, Stamaty’s creation encompassed a dizzying array of characters, stories, jokes and digressions.
