Festivals Extra: Gil Roth Profiles Kriota Willberg And Her Cartoonists-Helped Book At CXC 2018!

imageGil Roth talks to Kriota Willberg about her Draw Stronger book back at CXC 2018 in September.

I think Willberg's work is important because it's a non-fiction comics work less about finding legitimacy for comics than it is about providing aid and comfort to its makers. I've talked to a lot of people that purchased this book, and all of them are glad they did in terms of their finding some control over the aches and pains of making work within this medium.

I am glad this comic exists, that this cartoonist is paying attention to these issues and that I can follow Kriota's fellow comics-makers into areas that are challenging and exciting.
