Special Squadcast Interview with Michele Abounader

Well. our latest SquadCast episode is available on YouTube now. It features an interview with comic editor and writer Michele Abounader about her latest project: When I Was Young… (An LGBTQIA+ Charity Comic Anthology).

Michele has been the editor on several comic anthologies including: The Color of Always and Sharp Wit and the Company of Women. Both projects were crowdfunded and subsequently printed for mass distribution by A Wave Blue World.

The latest project is a collection of superstar creators who are contributing deeply personal stories for this anthology of short stories of inspiration, advice, and triumph. The money raised above paying the creators for their work and printing and shipping costs will be donated to the Trevor Project which is a charity that we support here at PCS.

This interview was recorded before the project was officially funded on Backerkit.com, but it is now fully funded and we encourage everyone to go and check it out.

Please enjoy this interview and the information regarding the project below and support this anthology.
