Sex, drugs, family -- YA comics tackle tough topics in words and pictures. Two authors, Laurie Halse Anderson (whose SPEAK graphic novel with Emily Carroll will be forthcoming from FSG BYR next year) and Ngozi Ukazu (whose #1 Kickstarter comic CHECK PLEASE will be coming up from First Second Books next fall) come together to discuss how to tackle both the good times and the bad times in teenagers' lives in words and pictures, with interviewer Heidi MacDonald (The Beat).
