Speak of the devil! Here they are again: Kochalka and Thompson. This time, however, they present their first ever collaboration; and it's an interesting one. In forty-eight 5" x 5" pages -- each co-written and co-drawn by both Kochalka and Thompson -- Conversation discovers yet another use for comics: that of carrying on the classical form of the dialogue, in the tradition of Socrates and Confucius. While the level of the dialogue in Conversation might not quite reach the hallowed heights of the founders of the form, it nevertheless represents a successful translation of the form's essentials, and provides a glimpse of what comics can bring to the table.
