Episode 59 - Cartoonists Against Amazon with Michael DeForge

The beloved Toronto-based artist Michael DeForge (@michael_deforge) joins us in studio to discuss comics, community spaces, and activism. We touch on his newest book, Stunt, as well as Leaving Richard’s Valley, Lose, Thickness, Adventure Time, and snag some info on his rejected pilot for Cartoon Network. Michael also co-authored an open letter to small press festivals urging them to drop Amazon as a sponsor, and is a participant in Toronto’s fight for 15, the campaign against Google’s Sidewalk Labs development, the recent LGBT community action admonishing the Toronto Public Library’s platforming of a transphobic speaker, and more!  If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor (if you support us on drip, please switch over). Follow us on twitter and instagram.You can contact Art & Labor at artandlaborpodcast@gmail.com
