In honor of Women in Comics Month this March, PREVIEWSworld talks with writer and artist, Audrey Niffenegger.
PREVIEWSworld: Talk to us about the heroic people in your comics life. Who do you admire? Who inspires you? Why?
Audrey Niffenegger: I find Lynda Barry quite inspiring. I started reading Ernie Pook’s Comeek when it first began running in the Chicago Reader, way back in the day. She is funny, transgressive and sharp but also, she really wants everyone to just get busy and make drawings; she’s a great teacher. She influenced my drawing style and she also makes me think about what it means to make art.
