Vancouver’s Robin McConnell hosts Inkstuds, a weekly radio show on UBC’s CiTR where he and his co-hosts interview notable artists from the alt-comics field.
He has recently compiled transcriptions of 27 of these interviews for a new book, the logically titled Inkstuds (Conundrum Press, 280pp, $20, softcover).
Some of the better-known subjects include Chester Brown, Seth, Joe Sacco, Mary Fleener, Jaime Hernandez, and Gary Panter. The interviews are presented without any introductory preamble or parenthetical insertions; McConnell assumes a certain depth of knowledge on the reader’s part.
