Welcome back to Waiting on the Trade, a monthly comics book club for people who don’t have time for monthly comics!
In this episode, guest host Callum Smith helps us explore ambiguous endings and the power of stories, as we discuss Isabel Greenberg’s The One Hundred Nights of Hero.
This episode’s explanations, observations, and links of note include:
- Because I feel compelled to promote every comic shop we mention on the podcast, here’s a link to Gosh! Comics’ website. And here’s a picture of the Isabel Greenberg print that Cal has hanging in his living room.
- I’d highly recommend you spend an hour learning about the many different versions of One Thousand and One Nights when you have a chance. The stories’ evolution is quite fascinating.
- Double page spreads: The bane of digital comics.
- If you enjoyed this book and our conversation about it, definitely check out Isabel Greenberg’s website and her other work!
