Island in the stream.

First things first, I love that song. Second things second, Julian Lytle’s Ignorant Bliss is my all-time favorite podcast and Lytle is perhaps one of the most insightful interviewers in the field today. Ignorant Bliss provides the rare chance to hear artists of color discuss their lives, the industry, and the creative process. So, of course, the minute I had the chance to be a part of it I was all in. Clearly operating in circles above my station, I discuss the cover to Island #15 with a crew of award-winning critics and creators—Darryl Ayo, Jonathan Gray, J. A. Micheline, and Ronald Wimberly. We also dig into issues of race, representation, and networking within the comics industry. Feel free to listen in.
