NIKKO on the Radio


Delfin Vigil’s wonderful non-fiction story NIKKO: Concrete Commando, beautifully illustrated by Rumpus comics editor Paul Madonna, was first published here on the Rumpus. Now Vigil has retold his tale for radio, and included recordings with Nikko himself, on NPR’s Snap Judgement. It’s great stuff.
