In the wake of recent book bannings in school libraries, most notably of Art Spiegelman's Pulitzer prize-winning graphic novel Maus, S.W. Conser and Bill Dodge revisit their earlier Words and Pictures conversations with Spiegelman.

Included in this episode are excerpts from Spiegelman's KBOO appearance in the fall of 2008 (when he talks about the controversial comic Prisoner on the Hell Planet that was featured in Maus) and a February 2006 lecture in Eugene, Oregon, addressing both the squabble over Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed and the failure of American media outlets to cover the issue straightforwardly.
