Missouri Valley College's Visiting Writing Series began at the first Viking Con on Monday, Sept. 25. Visiting writer Nick Potter was the first writer in the series and presented a book reading in the Eckilson-Mabee Theatre from his new book, "New Animals."
"'New Animals' is a story collection," he said. "What's kind of unique about it is some of the stories are in prose, some of them are comics and some of them … go back and forth between text and image. It is a collection of darkly, satirical stories."
He said he has been writing for about 15 years and has been doodling and creating cartoons his whole life.
