Comics Alternative Kickstarter: Plaguers Int’l

On this weekend’s Kickstarter episode, Derek talks with Max Huffman about his current campaign for Plaguers Int’l. As described on the Kickstarter page, Plaguers Int’l is

a loud, fast comic-shaped comic, with elements of all three genres: madcap romp, slapdash genre pastiche and relationship disaster. A panel or two might be unsafe for work.

And its plot?

Swirving Wildley is the newest member of the world’s most beloved extranational paramilitary death squad. Movement Salon is the leader of a wasteland guerrilla junk cult. They have a long day.

This promises to be a fun project, one that’s right in The Comics Alternative‘s wheelhouse, an alternative look at established genres with a healthy dose of humor and visual panache. While you’re at it, check out more of Max Huffman’s work.

This is definitely something work backing. Learn more about Max’s Kickstarter!

About Derek Royal

The Comics Alternative is a weekly podcast focused on the world of alternative, independent, and primarily non-superhero comics. (There’s nothing wrong with the superhero genre…we just want to do something different.) New shows become available every Wednesday…much like the comic books you get. Episodes feature reviews of graphic novels and current ongoing series, discussions of upcoming comics, examinations of collected editions, in-depth analyses of a variety of comics texts, spotlights on various creators and their oeuvre, roundtable discussions with prominent critics and scholars in the field, and interviews with the artists and writers who make all of this possible. Along the way, Andy and Derek will talk about the various books that they are reading; the many pop cultural references that, for better or worse, inform their lives; and the unpredictable (and inexplicable) weirdness that seems to creep into each episode. In essence,The Comics Alternative podcast is brilliantly simple: Two guys with PhDs talking about comics.
