This week we chat with Jeremy Holt, writer of the 6-part AI sci-fi series, Made in Korea. It explores issues of identity, human consciousness, and maybe even a bit of Americana. It’s published by Image Comics and the first issue is on the shelves of your local comic shop now.
With the fifth and final jumbo-sized issue of Rain Like Hammers hitting the stands, we talk to Brandon Graham about his far future sci-fi comic that he says is a kind of cousin of Iyashikei manga. But also there’s a super-criminal switching bodies with a genetically-engineered butler.
This week we’re joined by Alex de Campi and Khai Krumbhaar. They’re the editors of TRUE WAR STORIES, a 260 page nonfiction graphic novel anthology published by Z2 Comics that features 15 tales of American service members deployed overseas. The stories are written by the folks who lived them, and drawn by Peter Krause, Ryan Howe, Skylar Patridge, Eoin Marron, Tish Doolin , Dave Acosta, A. D’Amico, Drew Moss, Josh Hood, PJ Holden, Chris Peterson, Sam Hart, Jeff McComsey, and Paul Williams
