Talking to MSU

Ryan Claytor of the Comic Art and Graphic Novel Podcast at Michigan State University conducted an interview with me several months ago. It's now up for your listening pleasure. Images include some early comics that as a child I wrote and drew--like the one at right from 1974.

Here's the link to listen to the podcast: http://msucomics.libsyn.com/episode-016-eric-shanower

Get Your Mine!

Mine! is a new comics anthology published to benefit Planned Parenthood. An immense array of comics creators have contributed stories about Planned Parenthood as well as women's empowerment. Mine! is published by ComicMix and is now available.

I contributed to Mine!, a four-page story titled "Matilda Who?" Matilda Joslyn Gage was a major US figure in the 19th century women's movement. She was a thinker, a writer, an activist, and an organizer. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were her colleagues. But Matilda became marginalized and history largely forgot her. My story "Matilda Who?" tells why.

It's colored by award-winning comics colorist Laura Martin.

Lots of other comics creators contributed work to Mine! You can find a full list of contents here.

Mine! is on sale now at your local comics shop and online comics retailers. All profits go to benefit Planned Parenthood. I hope you'll enjoy reading Mine!
