284 – Rosalie Lightning

Rosalie Lightning

Our Best of 2016 megaseries gets an emotional punch to the gut this week as we read “Rosalie Lightning” by Tom Hart. In this graphic novel memoir, Hart recounts the experience of his life shortly after the death of his daughter. We talk about all the ways this comic works — from raw emotional expression to personal connection. This is a difficult piece to read, but also an important one. At the top of the show, we banter a bit about the new A-Force action figures and some Star Trek names.
