Ram talks all about how he became a comics writer and why he feels that more representation is needed in the industry.
I chat with award winning comic writer Ram V this week all about how he fell into writing for comics and his interesting journey into reading comics. We discuss how comics are subtle or not so subtle pieces of social commentary, how representation and new takes on classic characters is essential for the future of comics.
