Comic artists at ALA

July 2, 2012 by lindsay

This video by cartoonist and filmmaker Derek Kirk Kim was taken at the American Library Association convention’s Artist Alley. In the video, comic creators talk about how refreshing it is to sell their work at a convention for librarians where the people coming to their tables are enthusiastic, curious and grateful.

Indie cartoonist Jerzy Drozd particularly likes that librarians are more open to independent work and are not focused purely on characters with mainstream popularity. The video also features commentary about biases against comics and the reasons that comics belong in libraries.
