An interview with Jeff Smith, part one. Part two is coming soon, I hope. Smith is known best for his epic series of Bone comics:

Part of the plan was that I was going to reprint the collection in books, to always keep the story available. I always wanted to do the big one volume edition, too. One of the things that I wanted to do was change the model of comics and make them restockable, instead of comics just being up on stands for a month and then coming down and going back into the longbox, after getting marked up a bit.
