World Comic Recomendations

In episode 51 of the podcast I chatted with Brad Brooks, cartoonist, comic scholar and & co-author of ‘The Essential Guide to World Comics’. It was a pretty wide ranging conversation covering Harvey Kurtzman, what makes comics so special and the pros and cons of digital drawing. I also asked Brad for some World comic recommendations and as well as the ones mentioned on the podcast he sent through a list of some other favourites:
