In which I'm the one being interviewed about my work
Howdy, I have a couple of new interviews (of me) to share with you:
Back at SDCC I was interviewed by Rebecca Kaplan for The Beat about my book J.K. Rowling and the Ungrateful Fans. Rebecca asked me about what my intentions were with the book and why I chose to parody The Giving Tree to talk about JKR. We also talked a bit about how I changed my art style for the book and whether or not I think we need to get to a post-Harry Potter world (spoiler: I don’t).
The Beat also has a write-up of the Transgender & Nonbinary Stories in Comics panel I was on at SDCC. The article has some good photos of the panel, plus this paragraph specifically about me:
Saturday (she/her) got a lot of laughs in introducing her book, J.K. Rowling and the Ungrateful Fans, which is a satire, but not of Harry Potter. Instead, Saturday used Shel Silverstein‘s The Giving Tree, “the book about a tree who got turned into a book,” to tell the story about the writer and her fans. Her more serious book, The Greatest Thing You’ve Ever Seen In Your Life, tackles her childhood in a very religious community in Florida interpolated with her adult life first before and after their transition, including their time in the porn industry. Unlike most of the panel, she was less positive, talking about not being able to go home to Florida due to the anti-trans laws.
If video is more of your thing, I was just interviewed yesterday on the live YouTube show Comic Book Addicts. I spoke with host Scott Vaughn about my autobio stories printed in The Greatest Thing You’ve Ever Seen in Your Life. Scott was really enthusiastic about my work. We also took questions from the live viewers. The interview is just under an hour long and a lot of fun.
