It's starting to look like Tavi might like D+Q as much as we like her.

We all knew Tavi was into comics before we published Rookie Yearbook One, but I don't think we realized just how much of a comics fan she actually is. But over the past week, it's become undeniably clear to any faithful Rookie reader. (Okay, it was already pretty clear.) Take a look at all this evidence I've gathered from just the past three days!

For those of you who were rightfully impressed last winter when Tavi interview Dan Clowes, prepare to be impressed once again while reading her interview with fellow Oak Park resident Chris Ware! The interview is titled Work Hard and Be Kind, which is perhaps the best title for a Chris Ware interview that I've come across.

When we talk about Tavi around the office, the word thoughtful comes up a lot, and this is no doubt what makes her such an intelligent interviewer. She gets Chris talking about his childhood fear of taking his shirt off in public, accidentally stumbling upon Raw while actually hoping to find porn at a head shop during his '60s phase (in the '80s), and about art's ability to "condense experience into something greater than reality." Go! Read! It will be time well-spent.

But there's more! Earlier in the week in their feature titled Literally The Best Thing Ever, where Rookie talks about things that are, like, literally the best things ever, including retro-futurism, glitter, and Joni Mitchell, Chris Ware was once again the subject.

And then, of course, there's this article too, about writers' block, wherein we hear anecdotes/advice from talented writers like Joss Whedon, Malcolm Gladwell, Adrian Tomine, and Vanessa Davis! Hooray!

So there you have it. Tavi is a serious comics fan. And the best part of this? We're not even in cahoots! Tavi and her crew just have impeccable taste! Thanks for all the attention, Rookie!
