Sarah Drake has an extensive and very smart interview with Sarah Glidden up at Bad at Sports. It’s a really savvy conversation about comics, journalism, and being an artist.
Drake has created tremendous comics from Cambodia, and Glidden, a contributor to Symbolia, is working on a new book about journalism and the Middle East (check out the sneak peek above!). Their chat is totally worth a read.
This is totally amazing news. Kindle editions of Symbolia can be read within the Kindle app on any tablet. To help us break into the top 10, please purchase one of the below issues:
