Joan Hilty Interview

Joan Hilty is an editor at DC Comics and she’s also a cartoonist. I’m a fan of her weekly comic strip “Bitter Girl” (though I don’t find it that bitter) and she was willing to chat about the strip and her career as an artist. I asked her about the ghettoization of gay and lesbian artists who focus on gay and lesbian characters and issues which continues to this day, and her statements were thoughtful and insightful and pointed out the ways that imagination can lag behind real life in a way I’ve thinking about since.
