MFAW Alum Justin Hall has an interview online at Lambda Literary.
In 2006, Justin curated the art exhibition “No Straight Lines: Queer Culture in Comics” with Andrew Farago of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. This led to the 2012 book No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, a hardcover overview of LGBTQ comics history published by Fantagraphics, which won a Lambda Literary Award and an Eisner nomination.
He began teaching comics at the California College of the Arts in the early 2010s; in 2014, he added instruction for a Masters-level degree in the subject. In 2016 he received a grant as a Fulbright scholar to guest lecture at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic.
