Graphic Novel TK: Your Podcast Guide to Comic Book Publishing
Co-hosts Gina Gagliano (Publishing Director of Random House Graphic) and Alison Wilgus (Cartoonist, writer, editor and MeFite) guide listeners through the inner workings of graphic novel publishing through a series of interviews where professionals in the industry -- editors, agents, cartoonists, designers, etc -- explain the details of their jobs.

With this project, our hope is to help our listeners better understand the machinery of publishing, whether they be readers who want insight into how books are made, industry professionals who are curious about disciplines outside their own, or aspiring cartoonists trying to make the best choices for themselves and their work.

It's probably also worth noting that one of the next couple episodes is an interview with cartoonist and festival organizer Jen Wang and I can't want to share it, she's just such an interesting person!
