Edo Brenes writes and draws “Memories from Limón,” a graphic novel from Nobrow (2022), a journey back into hometown memory and history in a Costa Rican town, discovering family stories and secrets. We consider the storytelling power of following the protagonist, Ramiro, as he discovers this past through conversations with relatives over a trove of old photographs.

Then, at 23:00, we look at Olivia Stephens’ “Artie and the Wolf Moon” (Graphic Universe/Lerner, 2021), about an adolescent girl who discovers her family heritage… not through photographs but through finding out they’re WEREWOLVES! This middle grade/YA graphic novel richly depicts the freedom of running through the woods as a family of benevolent werewolves, as well as the joys and hazards of adolescence in the social world of malevolent teenagers (and vampires!).

Also mentioned: Love Everlasting’s podcast by Elsa Charretier with Tom Muller, “Nimona” announcement from ND Stevenson, 3W/3M’s Huddleston and del Mundo on “Off Panel,” Tom Brevoort’s Substack, and (not comics) Volts podcast on climate solutions.
