Ellen Forney and Marbles

I've been a fan of Ellen Forney since her debut book, I Love Led Zeppelin, a great collection of short comics. Since then she's worked on other projects including illustrating Sherman Alexie's great novel "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian."

Her new book "Marbles" is also her most personal. The story of her diagnosis as bipolar, it is an exploration of what it means to live with illness, what it means to be an artist and exploring the toll that creating art can take. I was thrilled to be able to talk with Ellen about what I think is one of the best comics of the year.
