Just leaving this message because I can't for the life of me figure out how to move/rename the page myself. This article really ought to use the full name of the comic strip: Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer instead of just Julius Knipl. The name Julius Knipl should just redirect to the full title, unless someone wants to make an additional biography-type page for this elusive character...

Coming soon: an entry for creator Ben Katchor?

Good ideas! Kestenbaum 07:31, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
Okay, I moved the page just now. Kestenbaum 07:34, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Ben Katchor certainly deserves a Wikipedia entry. He has a sizable body of notable work besides JKREP; e.g. "The Jew of New York." A real genius (and I'm not the only one who thinks so -- if I recall correctly he received a MacArthur Fellows "genius grant" a few years back). I'm inclined to start a stub myself, if someone else better qualified to write about him doesn't jump in soon... Kiscica 04:17, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

OK, I went ahead and started the article: Ben Katchor. Hope someone will expand on it. Actually my comment above about a "sizeable" body of work is hard to justify -- most of his published books, aside from TJONY, are JKREP collections. But I still think he's highly notable.

One of the most entrancing comic strips in the history of the medium. Katchor has a way of pulling the reader into Knipl's world, before leaving the first panel you are there! Absolute genius! (talk) 07:05, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Knipl pronunciation[edit]

I attended a presentation by Katchor in Toronto in 2001 in which he told the audience that the "K" in "Knipl" was pronounced. I'd love to include that information in the article, but I can't find a reference to back it up. Can anyone else find anything? CüRlyTüRkeyTalkContribs 04:44, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Well, I don't speak Yiddish, but I speak German, which is somewhat similar. And I'm surprised to hear that some people would consider *not* pronouncing the K.
In German the verb knipsen is a slang word for amateur photography. I wonder if this is related. (Although in "knipsen" the I is short, whereas in "Knipl" I would pronounce it long.) --Rodeng (talk) 08:50, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
