My Childhood Favorites

Sam Nakahira is a 2019 graduate from Grinnell College, interested in sharing stories from history, current events, and her daily life through comics. Since she was a kid, she would read comics, manga, and graphic novels all day long. Just as her favorite cartoonists and artists have done for her, she wants to draw stories that transform readers' worlds, perspectives, and thoughts. This fall, she is starting an MFA at the Center for Cartoon Studies.
