Process Party – Episode 01 – Vanessa Davis!



Study Group Comics has a podcast! Join hosts Zack Soto (Secret Voice, Power Button) & Mike Dawson (Rules For Dating My Daughter, Troop 142) as they discuss their own creative processes, comic art, family life, and a ton of other stuff.

Our First Guest: Vanessa Davis!


One of our favorite cartoonists, Vanessa joins us to talk about what she’s up to lately, celebrity sightings (sorta not really), her recent webcomics series on The Paris Review, and kicks off a sure to be re-occurring feature: Formative Works – aka We talk to cartoonists about the comics and art that have affected their own comics creation. This time, Vanessa talks up 100 Demons by Lynda Barry & Charlotte: Life or Theater by Charlotte Salomon.


Cartoonist & friend of the show  Shanna Matuszak also joins us to chat about recent comics releases CAGE #1 by Genndy Tartakovsky & Stephen DeStefano, Impatience by Ines Estrada, American Blood by Benjamin Marra, Shade The Changing Girl #1 by Cecil Castellucci & Marley Zarcone, & Snotgirl by Bryan Lee O’Malley & Leslie Hung.
