Matt Bors writes to alert us to a news Occupy Comics sketchbook — Sarah Glidden on Occupy Miami. Glidden was in town for the Miami Book Fair, but found time to visit the OWS site.
She explains more here, including the view from Europe where she’s currently working:
“When we would start talking about OWS, the attitude seemed to be that it’s great that Americans are taking some sort of action against the system we’ve created,” she says. “And then the conversation would inevitably turn towards “so wait, I still don’t understand… why don’t the American people want health care for everyone?” which is always fun to try and explain.”
Culture sketchbooks are coming on Thursday with Dan Carino in LA and Sara Rosenbaum in Boston. Next Wednesday an international edition with reports from Amsterdam, London, and Athens will run.
