This week Meredith Gran, the Ignatz Award winning creator of long-running webcomic Octopus Pie, joins us to talk about her creative history and process as well as the release of Octopus Pie in trade form from Image Comics, out February 26th. Meredith is one of my absolute favorite cartoonists and I consider her a huge creative pillar both in webcomics and the medium in general. She is constantly pushing the limits of the medium with a uniquely cartoony style and digs deeper with every story arc into the complex and sometimes absurd emotional drama of being young, chasing your dreams and confronting harsh realities, forming and breaking relationships, and trying to just live all the while watching the novelty of youth escape you.
