Marek Bennett Interview

Fellow New Hampshire cartoonist/educator Marek Bennett is profiled in a Concord Monitor article titled Quick on the Draw by Sarah M. Earle.

"Yes, comics tend to condense literature into bite-sized pieces, and not always the meatiest ones at that. But Bennett also believes they create important bridges. 'You're actively looking and creating connections: space, emotional, meaning, symbolic, thematic, time,' he said. 'You're the director.'"

Marek is one of the regional crusaders for creating comics, and he's now teaching not only kids, but their parents as well.

Above: one of Marek's shirts. I bought it from him at the last MoCCA Fest.
