Interview: G. Willow Wilson, author of Air, Vol. 1: Letters from Lost Countries

Mar 24, 2009

 Few newcomers to the industry have taken the comics world by storm as much as G. Willow Wilson. The creator of Cairo, along with illustrator M.K. Perker, Wilson presents a fresh voice and a unique perspective. Her background as a journalist writing about the Middle East and religion in today’s world, as well as the fact that she divides her time between America and Egypt, propel her to interesting heights.

Interview: Michael Crowley, author of 08: A Graphic Diary of the Campaign Trail

Jan 27, 2009

It was a year that none of us will soon forget. It began with a mindblowing victory for Barack Obama in the Iowa caucuses and unfolded into a tight, unbelievably fierce competition with former First Lady Hillary Clinton. And when the dust settled…Obama was the winner of the Democratic nomination. And that’s when things got really strange, as the election cycle truly began and Obama matched off against Republican nominee John McCain. We all know what happened next. Is it too soon to relive it? Not at all, if you’re looking at the graphic account of the entire election told in 08, new from journalist Michael Crowley and artist Dan Goldman (see an excerpt of it here).

Interview: C.M. Butzer, author of Gettysburg: The Graphic Novel

Dec 23, 2008

One of the most remarkable graphic novels I have read recently is C.M. Butzer’s Gettysburg: The Graphic Novel. As someone who works with preservice and in-service literacy teachers, I am always looking for literary-level graphic novels that will fit well within the English Language Arts curriculum. Due to its reliance on primary sources and exquisite visual representations, Butzer’s nonfiction graphic novel is surely going to be on the top of my list to recommend to teachers.
