Sarah Glidden (born June 16, 1980, in Boston[citation needed]) is an American cartoonist known for her nonfiction comics and graphic novels.

Biography[edit]

Glidden studied painting at Boston University. She began making comics in 2006 when she was living at the Flux Factory artist collective in Queens, New York.[citation needed]

She visited Israel as part of a Birthright Israel tour in 2007.[1][2][3] the self-published minicomics she made about that experience won her a 2008 Ignatz Award for "Promising New Talent."[4] In 2010, Glidden wrote and illustrated the graphic novel How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, a full-length exploration of her 2007 trip. The book has subsequently been translated into five languages.

From 2010-2012, Glidden was part of Pizza Island, a studio consisting of cartoonists Julia Wertz, Lisa Hanawalt, Domitille Collardey, Karen Sneider, Kate Beaton and Meredith Gran.[5]

Since the publication of How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, Glidden has been working in comics journalism. Her 20-page comic on Iraqi refugees in Syria was published on the website Cartoon Movement in 2011,[6] and she also did work for the comics journalism publication Symbolia.[7]

Glidden spent a year in Angoulême, France, as an artist in residence at the Maison des Auteurs.[citation needed]

In October 2016, Drawn and Quarterly published Glidden's Rolling Blackouts, the nonfiction story of her travels in 2010 through Turkey, Syria, and Iraq with a small team of journalists.

Glidden lives in Seattle, Washington.[citation needed]
