We interview Grace Ellis, creator of Lumberjanes and Moonstruck, about her new graphic novel with Hannah Templer: Flung Out of Space, Patricia Highsmith’s impact on our culture and literature, and how we grapple with the legacies of influential, yet undeniably terrible LGBT figures like Highsmith. We also get into Ellis’ deep love of queer comics, the limits of coming out stories, I Care A Lot, and Imagine Me & You.
