We’re back with another installment of Graphic Novel TK, your podcast guide to comic book publishing, co-hosted by Alison Wilgus and Gina Gagliano.
Episode 2a – Lingo, part 1
Words! As comics people, we all love them — but there are so many mysterious terms in publishing that it sometimes makes your head spin. In this episode (the first of a two-parter), we decode publishing’s secret terminology, with amazing manager and long-time comics professional George Rohac. Lucky for us, George is just as much of a nerd about this stuff as we are.
