We visit Monday Night Books, Thomas Beard's speakeasy bookstore tucked in the back of Light Industry, to speak to cartoonist and animator Dash Shaw about Cryptozoo, Hungarian animation, and drawing inspiration from Starship Troopers and video game playthrough videos. And Beard (a former Desert Island Comics employee) fills us in on Light Industry's upcoming move and his pivot to becoming "the laziest bookseller alive."
