Dave is joined by the creative pair of Ollie Hicks and Emma Oosterhous to talk about their new graphic novel, Grand Slam Romance. We talk about magical softball, queer comedy, sports manga and more!
On Comic Book Herald’s Interviews I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. CBH Interviews is an audio annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
