The TradeWaiters 29: “Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life” by Ulli Lust


In this episode we read Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life by Austrian cartoonist Ulli Lust. This comic follows the artist’s real life journey from Austria to Sicily with no money, no passport, and no friends. It’s a heavy book in terms of both physical weight and emotional content. Join us, we’ve got lots to talk about!

Also mentioned in this episode:
This interview with Ulli Lust by Marc Sorbel on The Comics Journal
Bones of the Coast published by Cloudscape Comics
Please Like Me written by Josh Thomas
And a bunch of video games, I don’t know, that part went right over my head because I’m not a real gamer.

And our own projects:
Phobos and Deimos by Jonathon Dalton
Crossroads by Jeff Ellis
Wasted Talent by Angela Melick, and
Lunar Maladies by kgros

Music by Sleuth.

Our next episode will cover the first two volumes of Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang.
