Talking About Prisons, Writing About Comics

Sasha Abramsky and I will appear together on the WBAI program Equal Time for Free Thought on August 3. We’ll be discussing the US prison system and the roots of our peculiarly punitive culture. The interview will be archived here.

Meanwhile, Radovan Karadzic was arrested for war crimes last week. (Read the BBC’s profile of Karadzic) In 2007, I’d interviewed comics journalist Joe Sacco about his meeting with Karadzic — and just re-posted the interview.

Otherwise, I’ve mostly been reviewing comics while I work on more involved research projects.

I reviewed Garfield Minus Garfield for Check out the comic at

I also wrote a review of Mike Carey’s God Save the Queen for the July issue of The Comics Journal. It’s not online, though.
