The Skulls of Summer present: An Interview with Alison Bechdel!
Out of the archives comes Nick's interview with comic creator Alison Bechdel. She created the brilliant, long running Dykes to Watch Out For in 1983. By 2008, when the strip went on hiatus, Bechdel had cemented herself as one of the preeminent cartoonists of her generation. Her graphic memoir Fun Home was a New York Times bestseller, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and winner of a GLAAD Media award among many, many other commendations. A theater adaptation debuted on Broadway in late March of 2015.
Her next graphic memoir/biography, Are You My Mother? was similarly lauded. And in 2014 she was a recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" Award.
