#26: "Hey Kids,COMICS!" (Ft. Jamar Nicholas)
or "What's so funny about peace, love, and diversity?" In this special team-up episode of Graphic Novelism, the experts on nothing real welcome their very first guest, multiple award-winning writer and artist Jamar Nicholas! They talk about the importance of comic books in a child's life, the distressing decline of all-ages books in today's adult-slanted market, reclaiming that missing balance, and how Jamar is doing his own part at curbing this harmful trend with his creator-owned title, "Leon, Protector Of The Playground"! Just why is a medium designed to make children happy turning it’s back on them? How important is it for kids to see heroes that look like them? And who IS the mysterious Japanese man living in Jamar’s computer? To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!
