Emi Gennis is a cartoonist and illustrator currently living in southeastern Kansas, where she teaches art at Pittsburg State University. Her true account of the end of a world depicts how brutal and surprising real life can be and opens Irene 4 on a note of doom n gloom…but somehow also on one of possibility.

Emi Gennis’ “Unfortunate Mishaps in Aviation History”
Two tales of foolhardiness resulting in disaster at the dawn of aviation. First, the tale of Franz Reichelt, a foolish inventor who was determined to create a “parachute suit.” Then, the story of S. A. Andrée and his ill-fated attempt to reach the North Pole in a hot air balloon.

In 2006, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel to Beijing, China with a group of 25 other University of Chicago students and three professors. We stayed there for four months, learning the history, culture and language of China and I can easily say it was the most fun I have ever had in my life. This story, “Squat,” which I drew in January of 2011, depicts a slightly less fun experience I had while on the trip. It was originally published in SCAD’s Travel anthology, and then again, in SPAZ! #4.
