The TradeWaiters 104: “Roaming” by Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki

Join Jam, Jeff, and JD for another episode of the TradeWaiters. This time we read Roaming by Canadian paragons of cartooning Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki. It’s a story of three young women visiting New York and discovering themselves, and in true Tamaki fashion, pushes the medium of comics to its limits. We’ll discuss our own adventures, the genre of comics that I GUESS we’re officially calling “mumble-core” now, and also the “Darryl Ayo method” of how the comics industry should work.
