Hi, all! Karma here–editor of the journal. I’d like to include some very brief reviews of Atwood’s last two projects (Catbird Vol. 1 and Hagseed) in our issue coming out next month. Anyone up for writing one? Send me a message: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Margaret Atwood’s first foray into graphic novels (though it should be noted she’s long been a cartoonist) will premiere on September 9th.
The trailer is available here.
