On the return of the Comics Syllabus podcast, we talk about “Hot Comb” by Ebony Flowers (Drawn & Quarterly), a memoir in vignettes about Flowers coming-of-age in the Baltimore area black community as a young woman and her experiences surrounding hair, touching poignantly on race, gender, growing up, family, societal expectations, community, class, identity, and selfhood. It’s a beautiful and powerful book that TwoPlai tries his best to unpack his responses and questions about.
