Squiddy’s Comic Chat: Episode #7

Squiddy's Comic Chat7Another week and NYCC in full swing dumping all sorts of comic news upon the ravenous fans. Squiddy has had a hard time focusing on all the good things, and all the bad things, emerging from the east coast. Her mind has been distracted on the grim news that Syrian editorial cartoonist Akram Raslan, winner of 2013 winner of Cartoonists Rights Network International Award for Courage in editorial cartooning has recently been taken out of imprisonment and executed. He had been in captivity since last July after being taken from his newspaper office and now rests in a mass grave. The news is grim and frightening to realise that editorial cartooning can get you killed in some places of the world and it’s not right at all.

Grim news aside, Squiddy moves on to talk about some things she’s excited for, happy that her pull list will be growing.

Enjoy this episode here.
