  4. What About The Future? - The Factual Opinion

    This week, Joe McCulloch, Matt Seneca and Chris Mautner talk about Black Paths, the new book from David B., which leads to a discussion of the French artist’s major work Epileptic and its influence (and Marjane Satrapi), which in turn leads to Matt complaining about the plethora of memoir comics that are cluttering up bookshelves these days. Then that leads to the gang talking about cartoonists that know how to get in and get out quickly, like Tom Gauld, Lisa Hanawalt and Simon Hanselmann. Then Matt talks about The Adventures of Jodelle, which has nothing to do with anything what we had been talking about beforehand, but sounds like a really boss book. Bad segue on our part!
