One of these days, I’m going to figure out how we’ve gotten so lucky here at GAR! This week, Glenn and I had the privilege of interviewing the current creative team of the Eisner-nominated and Glyph-winning comic book, Princeless (a big GAR favorite). Jeremy Whitley (the book’s writer) and Emily MartinÂ (the book’s current artist) were kind enough to stop by and talk about their book, teaching comics, publisher Action Lab Comics, and other topics.
