Episode: Pint O' Comics Episode 247 w/ Edmund Trueman

 POSTCARDS FROM CONGO is the latest book from the man AKA Junk Comix, Edmund Trueman. It's a brief history of the African nation of Congo, and the tumult the people in the region have had to survive since European intrusion. Lushly, colorfully illustrated, it's a great read for people with no knowledge of what's been going on there for the past 200 years, and even a great refresher for folks that do know. It contains a fully fleshed out bibliography for readers interested in doing deeper investigation, with notations from Edmund. Due out in November in North America from Arsenal Pulp Press, I think listeners will enjoy this discussion.

**AUDIO NOTE** Unfortunately this recording was difficult to edit with some unusual echo on my end and I erred in running the raw recording for the first half of the show. I'll run the proper edit after two weeks on the Pint O' Comics website. Apologies to both Edmund and Arsenal Pulp Press!
