Orbital in Conversation Episode 152 – A Taste of Space Dumplins with Craig Thompson!

Hello and welcome to Orbital In Conversation – the podcast of Orbital Comics in central London! We’re very excited to be part of the team at Multiversity Comics as not only are they an excellent group of people, but they share a similar level of taste and sensibility … It’s a great fit.
 
This week Chris chats with his near-namesake Craig Thompson about the new all-ages graphic novel Space Dumplins. In addition to geeking out over similar names and Christian rock of the mid-to-late ’80s, they discuss Craig’s love of comics growing up, how he explores various themes through his work, and why now is the right time for an all-ages book that addresses environmental issues and the class divide. All that plus some hints of Craig’s future plans, including a return (of sorts) to Blankets. Face it, true believer – you don’t want to miss this one!
