How do you do 1930s noir but make it feel fresh? Well, The Good Asian is a great example. We talk to writer Pornsak Pichetshote about his tightly-scripted, hard-boiled detective story set against the backdrop of America’s Chinese Exclusion Act.
This week we’re joined by Ben Sears, writer & artist behind Young Shadow, a new all-ages graphic novel that features a young, noirish crimefighter out to seek justice for a wide range of trespasses. It’s published by Fantagraphics and it’s in stores now.
