Enemies of the State #007 – Cannonball by Kelsey Wroten

Enemies of the State is a monthly virtual book club discussion on a recently published comic, featuring a rotating cast of comics critics.

Episode #7 of Enemies of the State features commentary on Kelsey Wroten’s Cannonball, published by Uncivilized Books in 2019. Cannonball features the unlikely rise of Caroline Bertram, a queer art school graduate who aspires to greatness as a self-proclaimed literary genius. But what happens when greatness doesn’t fix the brokenness inside you? Wroten explores the Millenial experience and the hamster wheel of success through a cast of witty queer characters. 

The cast for this episode includes the following critics:

  • Alex Hoffman, Publisher of SOLRAD
  • Daniel Elkin, Editor in Chief of SOLRAD
  • Jules Bakes, freelance critic
  • Sara L. Jewell, freelance critic
  • and Rob Clough, Contributing Editor of SOLRAD
