Comics Are Great! 19 – Ghosts of Comics Past and Future
It’s a talk about the past and future of comics with Karl Altstaetter! Karl and I start out by talking about comics in the 90s, his work on the Samurai anthology then about his work on the MTV Geek webcomics project and his own contribution, Me2! We then talk a bit about the future of comics and what we see that’s being done right and wrong as we move more and more of our content to mobile devices.
We’re joined at the end by Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library, who shares a few book recommendations with us as well as some of the exciting comics events happening at AADL.
