With Craig Thompson …
This week I chat with my near-namesake Craig Thompson about his new all-ages graphic novel Space Dumplins. In addition to geeking out over similar names and Christian rock of the mid-to-late ’80s, we discuss Craig’s love of comics growing up, how he explores various themes through his work, and why now is the right time for an all-ages book that addresses environmental issues and the class divide. All that plus some hints of Craig’s future plans, including a return (of sorts) to Blankets. Face it, true believer – you don’t want to miss this one!
