On this episode of The Comics Alternative Interviews, the guys are happy to have on the show Max Douglas, AKA Salgood Sam, to talk about his latest book, Dream Life: A Late Coming of Age(Spilt Ink), as well as other works from his career. They begin by asking about the origin of his pseudonym, learning that it has everything to do with the uneven expectations of the comics community. Here, Salgood Sam shares some of his experiences in the industry, his work for the Big Two, and his decision to work primarily as an independent creator and outside of the mainstream. This includes the founding of Spilt Ink, a small press dedicated to publishing comics, websites, and other forms of media. But the meat of the conversation centers on Dream Life, a project that has been several years in the making and continues to occupy the artist. This is the first book in what is projected to be a two-volume series, a diverse and cinematic narrative of intertwining stories exploring identity and relationships in an uncertain world. Derek and Andy ask Salgood Sam about the book’s origins as a webcomic, its evolution into a Kickstarter campaign, and then its ultimate release as a book earlier this year. Much of the discussion is devoted to the artist’s style, his philosophy of storytelling, and his adept handing of an ensemble cast. Along the way they discuss other projects from Salgood Sam, past and present, including Dracula: Son of the Dragon, Therefore Repent!, Sea of Red, and his independent anthology Revolver. It’s an engaging conversation, and one that has the Two Guys eagerly awaiting the final volume of Dream Life.
Be sure to visit Salgood Sam’s website, where you can find out up-to-date information on his various projects.
