Internationally recognized authority on comics and visual communication, Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work (Understanding Comics). Now he vaults into fiction with a breathtaking, funny, and unforgettable new work. In The Sculptor, McCloud delivers a spellbinding adult urban fable about a wish, a deal with death, the price of art, and the value of life. KCRW’s Elvis Mitchell guided a conversation with McCloud on his long-awaited magnum opus and the power of storytelling.
