It’s been a long, interesting ride for Eddie Campbell. Luckily, it’s been well-documented in comics form. In comics, Eddie assumes the alter ego of Alec MacGarry, who, in the course of 30 years, has grown quite a bit. Campbell documented his life in such works as Graffiti Kitchen, How to Be an Artist, and After the Snooter, all of which (along with many others composed over the years) have now been collected in one giant omnibus, Alec: “The Years Have Pants” (the title refers to how we can tell our appropriate ages by the types of pants we wear). Compiling one’s life in a volume is a massive undertaking, and we recently spoke with Campbell about the process and why he decided to take it on at this point in his life.
