In conversation with Elvis Mitchell, film critic and host of "The Treatment" on KCRW 89.9 FM

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.
