Geneviève Castrée Interview from 2013

With the recent passing of cartoonist Geneviève Castrée, I thought it would be a good week to skip regular scheduled programing and revisit this interview. I really enjoyed it and got a lot out of the conversation. We discuss her graphic novel from Drawn and Quarterly, Susceptible.  It’s a Canadian great. I found it really impactful personally on a number of different levels. Geneviève had a unique role in comics, following a variety of personal artistic applications, not just visually, but also with haunting and beautiful music. All of her work seems to compliment one another. Geneviève leaves behind a husband and young daughter. He had organized a gofundme campaign that is still accepting donations. I strongly suggest doing so. Health and social care in the united states are horribly lacking in supporting the basic human needs of vulnerable peoples.

    Sounds like she was a warm and very funny woman.

    So sad. I wish the best for her family.

    I will remember her talking, from this podcast, about making poop joke and violent minicomics starting out. Then she was able to move on to more emotional work. So it’s okay to get that kind of stuff out first.
