Episode 256 (Bonus): Joseph Remnant

8Feb

I’ve been eagerly awaiting Joseph Remnant’s debut graphic novel since he began collaborating with underground comics pioneer Harvey Pekar for the online Pekar Project anthology back in 2010. The moment finally arrived last year when Fantagraphics published Cartoon Clouds, the tale of recent art school graduates grappling with the realities of adult life. Of course, the cartoonist has been busy in the meantime, working on his on-going floppy series, Cartoon Clouds and working on Pekar’s final book, Cleveland, a fitting send off for one of the medium’s most influential writers. Remnant and I sat down at the CAB show in Brooklyn to discuss his work to this point and the process of setting out to create a debut graphic novel after years of shorter work and collaborations.
