    EPISODE 218 - BETH HETLAND

    EPISODE 218 - BETH HETLAND

    Beth Hetland joins me to talk about her new graphic novel Tender, from Fantagraphics. But we get into way more, as we track her theater, maker, and art background to her love of comics and journey into academia. We talk about her shadow life as a book conservator, and gush over the book binding supply company, Talas. It’s a proper geek-out.

    EPISODE 214 - CHUCK BROWN

    EPISODE 214 - CHUCK BROWN

    Ringo & Eisner award-winning writer Chuck Brown joins me to talk about the process of writing, scripting, and collaborating. The joy of period comics, how they intertwine between the tale and reality, and how they can teach and inspire. We also talk about his one year local writing residency, and Chuck encourages creators to look for new ways to work.
    Of course we talk about BITTER ROOT, his work with DC, SCAR, and other creator-owned comics like FLAWED.
    If you’re going to the Charlotte Mini-Con, in February, go meet the man himself.
