Episode 182: Carolyn Nowak, Diana’s Electric Tongue (w/ special guests Claire Folkman and Kelly Phillips)

This week we welcome back fan favorites Claire Folkman and Kelly Phillips, comic artists and publishers of the Dirty Diamonds anthology series, which is about to put out its eighth collection of comics by female artists, this time on the theme of sex. The Kickstarter for the anthology is running through the end of the month, so go chip in some money and get a copy of the beautiful book when it comes out.

Claire and Kelly picked our book this week, which is a comic by Carolyn Nowak called Diana’s Electric Tongue. It’s about a woman who mail-order’s a robot companion, on the heels of a rough breakup with a minor celebrity.

Topics of conversation include: personalized book inscriptions; things about comics you only notice on a second or third read; running a small press; working with your friends without driving each other crazy; and why Tom has never taken Mike for a panzarotti.
