This week I interviewed writer/artist Tom Humberstone about his graphic novel Suzanne: The Jazz Age Goddess of Tennis, one of Comic Book Herald’s favorite comics of 2022! We talk tennis, making sports comics compelling, and much 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. The goal is a fun guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
