Review

Praise for Jessica Abel's Out on the Wire

A Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2015

A Tech Times Best Comic of 2015

“A boundary-pushing comic, a love letter from one blossoming new media to another...Out on the Wire is a terrific book for radio superfans and would-be producers, a niche audience that isn't so niche anymore.”—Los Angeles Times

“With comics and podcasts both on the rise, it’s a perfect time for a media collision: Abel investigates modern narrative radio and its stars.” –Entertainment Weekly

“One of fall's coolest graphic reads...Consider the 240 pages a documentary comic and Abel your host.”—Marie Claire

“What makes [Out on the Wire] especially fascinating is its use of visuals to represent an aural form; not only are we reading behind-the-scenes stories of what we eventually hear, but we get a rare glimpse of what the people and places in them look like thanks to the not-often-enough-used comics journalism.” Chicagoreader.com

“This instructive, impassioned, and educational volume uses a deliberate and friendly approach in the vein of Scott McCloud… A must-read not just for listeners of today’s great flowering of audio storytelling but for those who want to learn how to do it themselves.”—Publishers Weekly

“A richly engaging graphic narrative about radio storytelling and storytelling in general… A spirited work whose readership should not be limited to those who make radio narrative or love to listen to it.” —Kirkus Reviews [starred]

“Abel (La Perdida) has performed a metamasterpiece by reporting with visual finesse and detail the complicated and sometimes precarious process behind public radio shows such as Radiolab and This American Life… Indispensible for communications collections and a valuable asset for anyone considering a career in media.” —Library Journal [starred]
