Interview with Emily St. John Mandel by Lisa

 

Watching a book you adore get nominated for prestigious award after prestigious award is like seeing your home sports team of choice plow through a glorious playoff series. That’s how I’ve felt for the last year watching Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel pop up all over the internet, get shortlisted for the National Book Award for Fiction and, most recently, win the Arthur C Clarke award. I’m still trying to figure out what the literary version of crushing a beer can on my forehead is.

 

It’s a virus-decimates-the-population-survival-of-the-fittest book, but with smarts and feels. The structure of the book is a logistical nightmare I can’t imagine trying to pull off, but Mandel makes it seem obvious, crafting what Andrew Butler (Chair of the Judges for the Arthur C Clarke Award) called “an elegy for the hyperglobalised present.” The befores and afters that the story unravels largely follow an assortment of actors, musicians, and an aspiring comic book artist. The caravan of busted former vehicles traveling between small settlements to perform what orchestral music and Shakespeare scripts they could salvage is stunning. And written in a prose so sad and hopeful and graceful that is almost physically painful.

Coincidentally, I liked the book, which is why I was so excited when Mandel agreed to answer a few questions about it and her fictional comic book that the novel takes its name from.

 

How did you come to use a comic book in such a central role in the novel?

 

I always knew that the character Miranda was going to be an artist, and I was interested in the comic book form. Given the complexity of Station Eleven’s structure-multiple points of view, shifts back and forth in time, etc.-I thought it would be a good idea from a technical standpoint to have a couple of objects that appear in both the pre-apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic sections of the book, as a kind of through-line, to help hold the whole thing together. So one of the objects is a comic book, and the other is a paperweight.

 

Did you make a mock up of the comic Station Eleven  for your own reference, or just have a mental image? Was writing about the comic in any way different from writing the rest of the novel?

 

I just had a mental image of the Station Eleven comic. I can’t really draw very well. My UK publisher commissioned an artist, the wonderful Nathan Burton, to design a page from the comic as an insert in the UK first edition. The result was completely different from what I’d imagined, but it was somehow perfect. Writing about the comic was no different from writing the rest of the novel.

 

What comics or graphic novels have you read?

 

Not as many as I’d like. I didn’t grow up reading comics, so I’m a bit late to this, but I love the form and think it’s a fascinating way to tell a story. The first I read was a Sandm  an book, a few years ago. The most recent was Jeff Lemire’s Trillium series, which I found immensely impressive. I’ve also found myself unexpectedly drawn to graphic memoirs lately. I usually have very little patience for memoirs, but I found Alison Bechdel’s FUN HOME profoundly moving.

 

Are you interested in writing a comic or graphic novel at some point? Do you think being a novelist would make it easier to write a comic or is there anything intimidating about the process?

 

I’m actually working on a script for the comic book in Station Eleven, between other deadlines. The process isn’t intimidating, but it is new to me, which makes it exciting. I think that being a screenwriter would make it easier to write a comic. If you look at a comic script, the form is very similar to a screenplay.

 

 

In spite of Station Eleven being on the short list for the Nation Book Award and books like Persepolis getting due praise, it feels like sci-fi, speculative fiction and graphic novels are still sort of dirty words in the world of literature. Have you gotten any sense that people are seeing more potential in speculative fiction or any kind of sequential storytelling, or are they still a sort of redheaded lit stepchild?

 

You know, it’s interesting, the only real friction I’ve encountered has actually been in the opposite direction: sci-fi fans who seem to think I’m somehow trespassing on their territory by writing a book set partly in the future. Some of them seem to feel that novelists coming out of the literary fiction tradition somehow don’t have the right to write speculative fiction, and that it’s “appropriation” when we do so, even though a lot of us grew up reading sci-fi and love the genre. I can appreciate how having to defend one’s genre against snobs over a long period of time could lead to a certain insularity, but my personal feeling on the matter is that I can write whatever I want.

 

In the non-genre literary world, there are still people who won’t pick up Station Eleven because it’s “too sci-fi,” but there’s absolutely more openness to “genre”-influenced works than there used to be. I mean, Cormac McCarthy won the Pulitzer for a post-apocalyptic fable with cannibals in it. And as for more mainstream acceptance of graphic works in general, Allison Bechdel recently won a MacArthur fellowship.

 

 

Lastly, what have you been reading or recommending lately?

 

The books I’ve been recommending the most recently are Atticus Lish’s PREPARATION FOR THE NEXT LIFE, which is his debut novel and something of a masterpiece, and Michel Faber’s THE BOOK OF STRANGE NEW THINGS.

 

 

 

The paperback version of Station Eleven goes on sale on Tuesday, June 2.

Better Know Your LCS:
“What are Bin Subscriptions and Previews and why won’t you stop talking about them like I’m supposed to know what those
mean?”

By Lisa

One of my favorite things about getting to work in a comic book store has
been getting to learn about how the comic book industry works. Of course
everyone comes to comics a blank slate. And now with Star Wars, killer
independent books, and the Marvel/DC Movie-TV-Netflix Assimilation
bringing so many comic-noobs and lapsed fans alike back into the fold, there are more people than ever who stare blankly at me when I ask if they have a subscription.

I’m sure everyone has heard or overheard someone in the shop saying that
our subscription service is free. Or recommending Previews and saying that
we will special order anything from it for free. A lot of people turn down
offers for subscriptions and special orders because they think it’s more
trouble for us. But it’s really not – we get daily shipments from Diamond
and have a massive library of subscribers. I can not stress enough how
little of a hassle is it to add your modest request to those two things.

–    Why bother with a subscription? I get that it’s free but I don’t see the
point.

The answer to this is one thing that makes everyone happy: so that we
order the correct number of comic books. No, you shouldn’t stay up at
night wondering if we guess correctly how many people want a copy of Hero
Cats. But if there’s a new Robert Kirkman series starting, any kind of
Special Event in any universe or a series you have had no problem buying
forever is suddenly all over the internet one week, that you should wonder
about.

There are lots of reasons why comics will unexpectedly sell out, but when
you’re subscribed, we’re going to pull a copy and keep it for you before
the books are available to the public. We just ask that you come in at
least once a month to pick them up. You’re not married to your choices
though – if you don’t want an issue of something you don’t have to buy it.
And you can always change you subscriptions by calling, emailing or
talking to us in the store.

We place orders for comics from Diamond, the massive company responsible
for the distribution of almost comic books, two months before they come
out. This happens a lot: suddenly everyone wants New Avengers issue
whatever because CBR broke three weeks before the book drops that Ultron
is going to make everyone grilled cheese sandwiches in it. We have ordered
our number of books already-based partially on how many subscriptions we
have for it-and if you aren’t there right away on Wednesday morning you
may have to wait for a reprint. If they do a reprint.

–    How do you know what you’re ordering two months in the future? Are you wizards?

This tends to blow some minds: once a month a giant paper thing called
“Previews” shows up in big stacks. It’s published by Diamond, the massive
distributor I just mentioned. It contains, more or less, every comic that
will be published during the month two months from then, along with a
photo of the cover and a little snippet giving an idea of what it is. This
includes brand new series and trades. It also includes all of the toys and
collectables Diamond sells. This is the very same information that we use
to order a lot of the stuff that shows up in the store. We sit with those
catalogs in the office and basically try to guess how many people will buy
every comic book in a given month. The more people that subscribe, the
better idea we have what to order, and the fewest number of people are
bummed if they miss an issue. And those people being bummed is a bummer
for us too. Do you really want to bum out Burl?

If a publisher reveals information about a comic that makes it hot a month
after we place our order (which happens all the time) you can still
subscribe and be very confident in the fact that you will get that book.
If there’s a special variant cover you want, your best shot at it is to be
subscribed to the series and to ask for it. Variants are strange country
because we rarely have control over what or how much of what we get, but
if you have specifically requested them you have a better shot at them.

That’s really all you need to know to be a complete ace at comics – use
Previews ($3.99) as a guide for scouting new series, knowing what’s going
on with long running series, toys, books, or anything, and let us know
what you want whenever you know you want it. And if you ever have
questions, please just ask. So many people apologize for asking a stupid
or common question before they even ask it – but all of us have been
working in retail for a very long time, and I promise whatever you’re
going to ask is not the dumbest or weirdest thing we’ve ever heard(that
does NOT mean to try and come up with the dumbest or weirdest thing we’ve
ever heard.). My job is literally to hang out in a comic book store and
make sure it’s a fun place for you to hang out and that we have the fun
things you want. Help us help you. More nerd, more happy.

 Hello Everyone!
MSP Comicon returns to the State Fairgrounds once again this weekend.  Hundreds of artists, dozens of vendors all focused on Comics.  Panels, Cosplay, signings, and more.  Be sure to stop by the store afterward to take advantage of the coupon available at our booth.

Josh Blaylock from Devil Due will be in town attending MSP Comicon and has decided to get a jump on the comic crazy by stopping by the Source and signing comics from 3-9pm.  Come on down.

Unfortunately due to a delay in receiving our special cover for My Little Pony Friendship is Magic #30, Anthony Hary will not be able to sign this Wednesday.  As soon as we are sure as to when the books will arrive we will be sure to reschedule.  Keep an eye out for a follow-up email.

World spanning conflict continues for both Marvel and DC this week with Secret Wars and Convergence.

Wolverine is still dead.

 Hello Everyone!
This week we are proud to bring you the first special variant cover from the Valkyries.  See Lisa’s post below for more about the Valkyries and what they are up to.

Secret Wars #1 kicks off Marvel’s new world changing epic.  DCs world changing epic continues with Convergence.

Know Your Nerds: The Valkyries

by Lisa

A couple of years ago, Adventure Time and Edward Scissorhands artist, Kate Leth, wished upon the internet for an army of women who work in comic book stores. Women who could chat about the comics they like, the foibles and daily eccentricities of working in retail, and sometimes about the difficulty of being a woman in an industry outwardly dominated by men. Rules are rules though, and if you move on from your comic book shop you must relinquish your Valkyrie title and move on to Valhalla.

On any given morning when I get to work I check my email, Twitter, all that good stuff, and then I check the private Valkyries page. If there’s an issue of anything out with something important in it, a Valkyrie has asked about it and another has answered. If there are speculators out trying to scoop up as many copies of a book as possible, someone has raised the alarm to make sure we can all try to hang on to the books for people who actually want them. Tips on organizing events, book clubs, starting Ladies’ Nights and links to cool and relevant Kickstarters are all frequent topics of conversation. Valkyries are having informal meet ups at conventions all over the country now and building a strong network of women passionate about comics and about making comics a welcoming and positive place for women coming to comics for the first time. It’s not a stronghold of “angry feminists” (even though plenty of us wind up getting Non-Compliant tattoos from Bitch Planet at these meet-ups, myself included) but rather a worldwide sisterhood dedicated to our growing sector of the comic book world.

A number of high profile comic creators have become vocal supporters of The Valkyries, among them Gail Simone. And in an act of “oh, obviously!” the Valkyries have banded together to release our first variant cover. It’s for the first issue of Simone’s massive Dynamite crossover event Sword of Sorrows and was rather appropriately done by fearless Valk leader Kate Leth. The cover is only available to shops with Valkyrie members and did not appear in Diamond or Previews. It was unveiled a couple of months ago at Emerald City Comic Con and is an obvious must-have for a whole variety of people.

Here at the shop Holly and I are both Valkyries and loving every minute of it. Any widespread group with similar aims in an industry is almost guaranteed to be fun, but in a year that’s seen so many huge blowups and struggles for women in general, and especially women in comics, it’s been even more fantastic. It says a lot about the current state of feminism that I feel like I have to reiterate the fact that this is not a He-Woman Man Haters Club. Yes it’s a club for women in comic book retail, yes we actively discuss serious issues about female representation in media and this industry, but it’s because we’re all big nerds who love the larger comic book community at large. And it’s a way for like-minded people in an industry to come together from all over the world to collaborate in new, cool ways. Like this first variant cover that your two friendly neighborhood Valkyries are pleased and proud to help present to you this week.

 Hello Everyone!

Star Wars continues with Star Wars #4

Wolverine is still dead
Enjoy the Spring,

The Source Crew

Lisa’s Comic Soapbox

by Lisa

 

If you have talked to me within the last four months about upcoming comics I probably started to blather excitedly about The Infinite Loop. The first issue is finally here via IDW who scooped up writer Pierrick Colinet and artist Elsa Charretier following their very successful French crowdfunded debut.

 

It’s gorgeous. The art is dynamic and lively, fluctuating easily between the serious and the humorous. And the story is fresh. There’s time travel, and trouble in the time stream, which is all the rage at the moment. But when the problem is a human you must abandon your previous life to run away with, that’s slightly more complicated. Yes, that’s intentionally vague because I knew nothing about it when I read it for the first time and it made the book that much more fun.

 

It’s going to be a limited series and you’re going to become very familiar with the names Pierrick Colinet and Elsa Charretier so grab this one early because even though we ordered up I don’t see this one sticking around for very long.

 Hello Everyone!

What do Archie, Arnold and Danny have in common?  With this weeks Archie vs Predator #1 they have all met our favorite invisible hunter from outer space.  Can Archie survive or will he die again? Or do they get married, sometimes Archie stories are hard hard to follow with all the twists and turns.

DC continues to pit universe against universe in Convergence #2 and all of the other Convergence titles this week.

If you have Netflix be sure to check out Daredevil.  Marvel has once again done a superior job of creating an spellbinding show that keeps you watching to see what happens next.

Brian Wood debuts a comic about the American War of Independence with Rebels #1.  A great look at the growth of a homegrown militia forms in response to an oppressive government ruling from across the sea. Well written and well illustrated by Andrea Mutti.  Be sure to check this one out.

Lisa’s Picks Featuring Q&A with Nonplayer’s Nate Simpson

Finally the answer to molisa 1st of the most common “do you have a copy of…” questions is yes. We got in a bunch of eagerly anticipated reprints today. Besides the obvious Star Wars and Spider-Gwen resupplies we have Descender #1 from the comic-book-manufacturing-robot-posing-as-a-man known as Jeff Lemire and Ei8ht #1 by Rafel Albuqerque and Mike Johnson, which are both outstanding. We also got just a couple copies left over from the first printing of Red One #1 so if you want that, let us know quickly.

Next door in the land of new comics there’s a New Star Wars Comic again – Kanan: the Last Padawan – and Convergence #0 is kicking off DC’s latest universe reset. I started out very skeptical about Convergence but have been getting weirdly excited to see how it goes. But four books are going straight to the top of my obscene huge reading stack:lisa 2

Lady Killer: Joëlle Jones’ line work and colors in this book are out of this world. They capture the time period and blend with the dialogue and story perfectly. If you haven’t picked up this book yet, the elevator pitch is a seemingly perfect housewife who also happens to be working as a contract killer for a charming, mysterious man. Murder, suspicion, action…all that good stuff.

Feathers: This is such a great book. Issue 4 of 6 is out this week from Archaia, purveyors of all-ages books with wide appeal ala Mouse Guard. An orphaned boy, seemingly part bird, is taken in by an old man. Years later a rambunctious princess demands a trip outside of the castle walls, where she is convinced all of the most fun things in life are waiting, and promptly runs away from her guard. The two meet and discover something sinister is afoot in the gritty world around the castle walls known to most as “The Maze.”

UFOlogy: If you haven’t been reading many BOOM! titles lately all you need to know is that they’re just killing it and that if a new book looks cool, it probably is. UFOlogy is the next one of those. Becky Finch, high school student, has a close encounter and is sucked into a world of “intergalactic mystery.” It’s also set in rural Wisconsin, so insert your own cheesehead joke here.

The Dying and The Dead: This book has triggered a rare alignment of stars in which Bob likes a comic book that the rest of the staff also likes. It shouldn’t really be that much of a surprise though – Jonathan Hickman writes a book with incredible visual design about a mysterious deal with an underground civilization upon which life and death balance? Obviously awesome.

The title, though, of Coolest Thing This Week goes to the third reprint of Nonplayer. Nonplayer is a gorgeous, unique piece of comic art drawn, colored and written by Nate Simpson. It’s been five years since the first issue debuted and promptly sold out at SDCC, but there’s been a bit of a hiatus due to the fact that life happens. Simpson is back now, and was generous enough to do a little Q&A for us about his book so you’re an expert when you run in here to grab a copy.

For the people who missed #1 the first time around, what’s your comic about?

It’s about a girl in the near future who’s an elite assassin inside a virtual reality MMO, but she’s kind of a loser in the real world. She happens to kill the wife of an important character in the game right around the time that the game’s non-player characters have started coming to life. The repercussions of that act spill out into the real world.

What’s the crux of the book for you: are you more interested in the dystopian future or the video game?
The book hinges on treating the “fake” and real worlds as equally valid, so I have to stay as impartial as I can. Almost equal amounts of time are spent on both sides of the digital divide. And I’m as big a fan of Darrow-style quasi-apocalyptic cityscapes as I am of Rackhamesque gnarled trees and dragons. Both settings are fun to draw.

That said, I have a little more fun drawing the fantasy environments because there’s less of a need for details to correspond to readers’ real-world experiences. For issue two, I swear I spent a day and a half just trying to draw phone receivers correctly. Have you ever tried to draw an old-style phone before, with that blasted curly cord from the receiver to the phone? That sucked. So I guess the real world can feel a little more laborious. But then again, there are robots, and those are fun to draw. I dunno. It’s pretty much a tie if you include the robots.

Have you read “Ready Player One?” It’s pretty awesome.

I have not. I have nearly read it numerous times, but I have a perhaps-naive fear that it’ll somehow either infect Nonplayer or be so good that I lose all hope and just quit drawing the book altogether. As soon as Nonplayer is done, I’ll run out and buy it. My wife said it was amazing.

Is the plan still for 6 issues total?

The plan is for either six issues with a double-length final issue or seven normal-length issues.

In the time that you had away from Nonplayer have you made any significant changes to your original plans for the story or art?

I don’t think the art has changed much, but the story has certainly evolved as I’ve continued to live in that world. In the broad strokes, the main story points are pretty much all set, but I think I’m getting better at getting things to flow more elegantly.

Do you plan to stick with comics after Nonplayer?

Absolutely! I’ve already started working on the story for the next thing. I’m excited about it. It’ll be an opportunity to experiment with a much simpler, more gestural drawing style and a MUCH faster release cadence. I think I’ve pretty much had my fill of slow-cooked comics for the time being.


Grab a diaper before you sit down to read this comic book because your eyes are going to crap their pants:
