Hi, How Are You

Our first graphic novel, The Incantations of Daniel Johnston, by Ricardo Cavolo and Scott McClanahan is buzzing! Literally. An excerpt just appeared in BuzzFeed (super rad). Early reviews have praised the book and I myself love it so fucking much. In honor of Daniel Johnston himself, I reached out to our beloved Two Dollar Radio Street Team to see what they had to say about his music and more...

Meet Molly Delaney!

We'd like to take a moment to introduce Molly Delaney, our first employee at Two Dollar Radio!

Molly has been working with us for the past year+ in production and marketing, and since her background and interests aren't as embedded in the traditional publishing mindset, she's been a huge help and terrific source for creative ideas apart from what we've historically done to try to get people to read our books. It was Molly's idea to create the Two Dollar Radio Street Team, and she has been instrumental with developing a top-secret major project that we plan to release news about very, very soon.
