Here's a longer clip of five interviews I did in a row at SPX this past weekend. These creators' work largely has more of an indy feel and while they all have web presences I think all are a bit more focused on print. I have reviewed work from J.T. Yost and Sophia Wiedeman before but it was my first time looking at comics from the other three. Yost had a Xeric Award winner in his book Old Man Winter (reviewed here) and Wiedeman had a Xeric Award winner in her book The Deformitory (reviewed here).
In order I talked to Steve Seck
s about his comic Life Is Good, Sara Lindo about her comic Carl In Love, Marguerite Dabaie about her comic The Hookah Girl And Other True Stories, Sohia Wiedeman about her comic Lettuce Girl, and J.T. Yost about his two new series -- one about dreams and the other about found objects.

I got a chance to do short interviews with Sara Turner and Jerzy Drowd at SPX this past weekend.
Sara was there to promote her new comic The Ghosts of Pineville. They also had a print collection of The Replacements, a webcomic that originally ran on GraphicSmash.com that Sara worked on with Jerzy. Jerzy and Sara put out a lot of their work under their Make Like A Tree banner where you can also find out more about what they're working on.
Jerzy was there to promote a new minicomic, Tiny Hamiltons, that he did with his wife Anne. He also let slip that he's already written another volume of his webcomic The Front although it sounds like it won't be until next year at the earliest that we'll see it on the web.
