The TradeWaiters 69: Reading Deeply

VanCAF 2020 was held online, due to the world being in its current state, and so the TradeWaiters panel we pitched them became an online event as well. I present to you “Reading Deeply,” on how to get the most out of your comics reading experience. We have both video and audio versions of this episode, which I will link here.

The audio quality on this one isn’t great, sorry. Some of us (me) didn’t think to get high quality microphones before a pandemic made new cameras and mics impossible to acquire.

Scott Pilgrim and Seconds both by Bryan Lee O’Malley
V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd
Berlin by Jason Lutes
