Sasha Bassett - The Case for Unionizing Comics
Sasha Bassett is a comics scholar, PhD student in sociology, and instructor at Portland State University. She’s also an unabashed supporter for the unionization of comics and just led a huge study on what it’s like to work in the comic book industry in 2019. In this episode she joins me to discuss:
Her own career & progression into the industry
The Comics Workforce Study
Process of putting together the study
The results (piece by piece)
The case for unionizing comics (as befitting the episode title!)
& more on her perspective of the comic book industry!
