Meet Superstar Web Cartoonist Ngozi Ukazu

 

 

At the 2017 Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle, Gene meets up with Ngozi Ukazu, creator of the popular web comic, Check Please! — the quirky story of a pie-baking college hockey player.

She graduated from Yale University in 2013 with a degree in Computing and The Arts, and received a masters in Sequential Art in 2015 from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

In this podcast, Gene and Ngozi bond over their shared love of animated TV shows (Justice League, The Simpsons) and sitcoms from the 90s. Learn more about Ngozi and her work >
