In this episode, Nick talks about his path from kid to colorist to full-time artist on a hit comic like EAST OF WEST. We talk about leveling up as an artist, the trick to surviving with a creator-owned book, and measuring fan response against your own feelings. After, we dig deep into manga, Japanese comics, and what makes the storytelling in the best of them so compelling.
