Yesterday I read an old copy of The Comics Journal (the Schulz Library has a very near-complete run) and enjoyed an interview with a comic hero of mine, Megan Kelso. the Journal in known for its in-depth interviews, and this one didn’t disappoint.
One point I found interesting was made about was Kelso’s story “Queen of the Black Black”. At the time of the interview, it was current work and one of her most sophisticated stories.
For those unfamiliar, Nevelson was a renown American sculptor. She is most known for her massive assemblage pieces, made from salvaged wood and usually painted one color.
Royal Tide I by Louise Nevelson
Kelso goes on to describe her approach to story crafting, and some of the challenges faced when one is both a woman and an artist. She addressed this in “Queen of the Black Black”as well.
