I love this little feature that Shelf Awareness do, asking artists about what they’re currently reading and the books that have had an impact on their lives. I always like to hear about what comics people are reading anyway, but I mostly love this because the interviewees give their reply in illustrated form, which makes it so much more engaging. Previous authors have included Hope Larson and Lucy Knisley, and latest in the dock is none other than the mercurial Paul Pope, discussing horror, the supernatural, Disney, Frank Herbert and much more. He packed in quite a bit for a short piece!
Pope’s much anticipated Battling Boy releases in October via First Second.
