Luchadoras feautured on The Orbiting Pod

Tags: , ,

A match made in heaven: one of our favourite comic shops talks about one of our favourite books. The ever-excellent Orbital Comics‘ deliver a really thoughtful conversation on Luchadoras on the latest edition of their Orbiting Pod podcast.  A really accurate reflection of the reasons that we chose to translate the book, the Orbital team talk about the subtlety with which Peggy Adam handles characterization, the symbolism within the narrative,  and how the book is “not about preaching, but showing” the situation in Juarez.

The audio review, which gives across-the-board thumbs-up from the team can be found here: http://www.orbitalcomics.com/2011/06/the-orbiting-pod-episode-29/. Next time you’re visiting Orbital, make sure to say hello from us!
