Comics & Lit 2009: Ep 05

Today we discussed Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis and found interesting ways to work politics, aesthetics and more than a few soapbox moments into the conversation.  Lots of name-dropping in this discussion: Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechdel, Harvey Pekar, Joe Sacco, Dr. Seuss and even Barack Obama all made brief appearances.  And as an extra special added bonus, if you listen carefully, you’ll get to hear me go totally Grumpy Professor on a student for text-messaging on her phone right in front of me as I tried to keep the conversation from becoming an Epic Fail.
