The TradeWaiters 51: “Fante Bukowski” by Noah Van Sciver

It’s like Goofus without Gallant. For this episode we read Fante Bukowski by Noah Van Sciver, a short, indie graphic novel about a failed writer who is basically the worst. Check out the book and then listen in to find out what Jess, Jon, and Jeff thought about it. We’ve got plenty of good writers’ tips to share, like don’t die, and manage your moose anger.
