Comics Alternative, On Location: Talking with Creators at the Sumter Comic Arts Symposium 2017

Listen to the podcast!

Time Codes:


Our Man in Sumter

As listeners of The Comics Alternative know, Andy oversees the annual Sumter Comic Arts Symposium every spring, and this year is no different. And this time, not only has he organized the entire event, but he also took time out of his duties to interview several of the creators who appeared at the symposium. First, he speaks with Sophie Goldstein and Carl Antonowicz at the local Waffle House — the sound quality isn’t ideal, but the breakfast ambience is palpable — and then he conducts an interview with Jeremy Whitley, talking primarily about his recent work with Marvel Comics.

Be sure to check out today’s companion on-location episode where Derek talks with several artists and publishers at Fan Expo Dallas 2017!
