Listen to the Archive Episode of Graphic Policy Radio With Guest Matt Miner

This past Monday we had a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio with guest Matt Miner and we talked comics, politics and more!

Matt has two new releases Liberator #1 and an item in the upcoming Occupy Comics #2, both by Black Mask Studios.

His creator owned series Liberator follows an animal rights superhero. Matt is a dog rescuer himself, taking an issue he cares about and giving it a broader platform through his writing and comics.

It was a great show and we covered a lot, including a lot about advocacy. It was a fascinating discussion for fans of comics and politics.
