Flannery O'Connor: Cartoonist

Georgia College has released a book of her cartoons this year titled THE CARTOONS OF FLANNERY O'CONNOR AT GEORGIA COLLEGE. 

Today's Guardian Book Blog weighs in.

"The Cartoons are taken from her time as a high school student at Peabody and then an undergraduate at Georgia State, and would have been published in journals alongside news stories relating to the life of the school and college itself. Cut from linoleum with oil-based ink applied to the ridges, the drawings are rudimentary but charming, a stripped down version of what Marjane Satrapi did in Persepolis."
