I wrote about this in my link round up the other day, but I wanted to give it it’s own item just as a benchmark for how far comics promo can go. Hawke joined Jimmy Fallon to talk about INDEH, the new graphic novel about the Apache Wars, which is drawn by Greg Ruth and doubtless based on a screenplay, but it’s a very well drawn tale.
Of course, the bit where Hawke and Fallon sang made up “FML” country songs got all the headlines.
It isn’t quite like when Harvey Pekar was a regular on Letterman, though. Perhaps someday a graphic novelist who is not also an award-nominated actor will be on The Tonight Show to chat about her book.
