Supercontext: My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris

We look into the story behind-the-scenes of this surprisingly profound comic: from Ferris’ struggle with West Nile virus, to the book’s seizure en route through the Panama Canal. In addition, we discuss Ferris’ theme of “personal monster dilemmas” and how the process of creating this was like melting valuable dross from gold.
