Tim O'Shea at Robot 6 talks to Megan Kelso about her newest graphic novel, Artichoke Tales:
I’ve always been drawn to silent passages in comics. [. . .] I have a fair amount to say as a cartoonist, and could never pull off an entirely silent comic that was any longer than 4 or so pages, because eventually, I want to SAY some shit, but I think silent passages in comics can be enormously effective, in allowing the reader to have their own thoughts and interpretation of events, and to serve as contrasts to especially talky passages.
