NPR Piece on Derek Kirk Kim

imageNational Public Radio keeps up its comics onslaught with this piece on Derek Kirk Kim, author of Same Difference & Other Stories. Kim's emergence interests me because it's like his work sort of shimmied to the surface through exposure on-line rather than the more typical arc of someone immediately backing and supporting his stuff through publication. This makes him both a figure in which early fans have a proprietary interest and someone who got to put an initial book out for more general audiences after having worked through some of every artist's initial clumsiness.
