Books That Make You Discover Deeper Philosophical Meaning in Pulpy, Graphic Novels with Guest Russell Nohelty

We don’t often think of graphic novels or comics as having deep, philosophic meaning, but should we? The guest of this show is author and entrepreneur Russell Nohelty. He discusses the bigger themes he likes to deliver through his writing.

Listen as he talks with host Desireé Duffy about the underlying meanings in stories. They discuss how they can slowly and gradually be revealed to uncover universal theme that we all can identify with. From fairy tales to mythology to religion, we’ve been rooting for our heroes and heroines to not only kick butt, but to grow personally and to overcome their own inner struggles.
