Weekend watching: Gene Luen Yang talks about his life in comics

Gene Luen Yang: Keynote - Breaking into Graphic Novels & Comic Books Conference from hclib on Vimeo.

Gene Luen Yang, who just picked up an Eisner for his short story "Urgent Request" in The Eternal Smile, discusses his evolution from geek to comics geek to comics creator to successful comics creator in this video of a talk sponsored by the Hennepin County Library and the Loft Literary Center. I saw Yang give the same talk at the American Library Association meeting last month, and I can highly recommend it—he's personable and entertaining, and he has a lot to say. The video is almost an hour long, but the time will fly by.
