Carolyn Nowack: A.V. Club “10 Great Cartoonists You Need to Know”
March 8, 2016
Carolyn Nowak (BFA ‘11) is featured as one of A.V. Club’s “10 great cartoonists you need to know: Celebrating International Women’s Day”.
Carolyn Nowak may be familiar to readers for her work as an artist on the award-winning Lumberjanes (Boom!), but she is a superb cartoonist who is best appreciated when writing and drawing her own comics. This is exemplified in her autobiographical Lazy strips; the weird, funny, and touching Girl Town; Rungs; or this poignant short comic on beauty. Nowak has a gift to seamlessly broach any subject and make it easily engaging.
