CBCC Creator Corner: Brea Grant on Mary: The Adventures of Mary Shelley's Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter

Brea Grant will not let 2020 stand in her way. In addition to writing two films, directing one, and starring in several others, Grant also recently launched a new graphic novel from Six Foot Press. "Mary: The Adventures of Mary Shelley's Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter" is a beautiful genre celebration purposefully linked to an extremely relatable coming-of-age saga. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate Halloween than hanging out with Grant in the Creator Corner and discussing her compulsion to explore the legacy of a literary icon. Plus, there is some serious chatter regarding the pros and cons of Sexy vs. Stitchy Frankenstein monsters. Can you guess where Lisa falls on this matter? It's a trick question. After listening to this episode, you'll want to continue your Brea Grant obsession by diving into her podcast, Reading Glasses. You can also check out her other Mary Shelley-related interview over at People I Think Are Cool and hear an interview earlier this year, where Grant discusses her film "Lucky" on the ITMODChatCast. Other important links mentioned in this episode: Liz Reed of Cuddles & Rage is currently co-curating the art exhibition "Draw Me Like One of Your Final Girls" at the Spoke Art gallery. Hear Brad's interview with Grant's Reading Glasses co-host, Mallory O'Meara, on the ITMODChatCast.
