Sarah Glidden started making comics while in residence at Flux Factory in 2006. They weren’t the best comics, but hey, we all have to start somewhere. Her first book-length comic, How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, was published by Vertigo in 2010. Her second book, Rolling Blackouts, will be published by Drawn & Quarterly in 2015. In between, she has been making illustrations and shorter works of memoir comics and comics journalism for newspapers, magazines and online publications. You can see her work at www.sarahglidden.com.
