Man v. Liver is a book by Asheville native and illustrator Neil Hinson and author Paul Friedrich that centers around a simply drawn figure called “man” and his Dean Martin-esque one liners. Hinson describes the book as “a 100-page collection of sayings that we wish we remembered saying at the bar.”
Comics writer Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Secret Six) was the guest of honor at this year’s Fanaticon2 convention. She talked with Xpress about creating three-dimensional superheroes, the value of female characters and a possible move to Asheville.
