Stephen Murphy Opens Up About Fear and Slivers of Hope in The Puma Blues

When I had the chance to read The Puma Blues, I have to admit that I was completely and utterly blown away by the book and I decided to talk with both artist Michael Zulli (in an interview that ran in The Comics Journal earlier in the summer) and writer Stephen Murphy, about the book. My conversation with Murphy was amazing as we spoke about the book on a lot of different levels, I through reading for pleasure happened upon a quotation that so affected me and echoed the ending of the book. The Puma Blues is not the easiest graphic novel, it's certainly not the most hopeful, but it is an amazing and moving book that really hit me on so many levels, and I'm so glad that Stephen and I had the opportunity to talk.
