Working, working, working! Frances Scarland continues to search for a perfect balance in her career as a law clerk, where the only certainty seems to be flux. Yet she loses footing as her close friend Vickie rides an unrelated wave of opportunity. Pope Hats #3 offers the lengthiest installment yet in Rilly’s ongoing story about the give and take of professional success. Also features short strips adapted from the work of Spalding Gray and a conversation with Ai Weiwei. Plus a new letters page with fatherly wisdom by the likes of Seth, Jeffrey Brown and Adrian Tomine.
Ethan Rilly won the 2012 Doug Wright Spotlight Award for his work on Pope Hats. The series and second issue were also nominated for the 2012 SPX Ignatz award.
