Important bulletin: Please read Paige's blog about this show BEFORE you listen. She has a couple of disclaimers.
We talk about her cartooning work now at Comics.com and from when she illustrated stories for newspapers in Atlanta.
Paige is a huge fan of sci-fi movies so we touch on that for a while, and how this devotion shaped the texture and look of the Martian Confederacy, which she drew and co-plotted. It is written and co-plotted by the very talented Jason Macnamara. Here's the official blurb regarding the book:
Toxic air. Bloodthirsty politicians. Drinking bears.
Welcome to Mars in the year 3535. Stripped of its natural resources and forgotten as a vacation destination, Martians struggle to afford breathable air. Boone, Spinner and Lou were three outlaws looking out for themselves. But when a cure for Mars’s toxic air falls into the wrong hands, thieves are forced to become heroes. And as an entire planet gasps for air, three rednecks will fight for the survival of their planet.
