RKJ tells all about his graphic novel from its beginnings, its road to Fantagraphics, to Time & Publisher’s Weekly‘s Best of 2005 lists! Plus his Cher Simura and Audubon stories from MOME! Paolo discusses his painted work for Marvel’s origins series, Mythos, his process and influences, and being recently named Marvel’s Hunk of the Month! Did you say big episode?
