This one’s in Time Out Chicago as a Critics’ Pick, and there’s an interview in the Chicago Reader where Gilbert says: “Marble Season… is my valentine to the good and funny parts of being a kid.”

Oh, and there’s this: a lengthy profile on Gilbert in the Chicago Tribune. Chris Borrelli notes:

Marble Season [is] Gilbert Hernandez’s sweet, new semi-autobiographical remembrance of his comics-obsessed youth. Put simply, this is a book about what it felt like to be 10 years old, to have an unscripted afternoon to yourself, to make up games, wander the neighborhood in packs and not worry much.”
