There’s a reason why I chose Carta Monir as the cartoonist of 2017. She’s an incredibly talented artist and is capable of illustrating deeply personal story. There’s always this sort of bittersweet quality to her work that I find appealing. There’s this palpable trauma and sadness underlying her work, just as there’s this sort of […]

Eugenie Shark is a comic book biography of scientist Eugenie Clark, a Japanese-American ichthyologist Eugenie Clark and a pioneer in marine life research. It’s a passion project of Nicole Marie Burton, cartoonist and publisher at Ad Astra Comix. I like these kinds of biographies. Those that integrate the biographer’s life to the story. It’s not […]
Agents Of The Realm is the webcomic that every creator I look up to loves. It’s a book I discovered through seeing many people in my online life fall head over heels in love with it, and for good reason: It’s WONDERFUL!
