Set in the not-too-distant year of 2024, Analog(Image Comics) is a not-too-far-fetched look at what can come of information technology when it has fallen into the wrong hands. Its protagonist, Jack McGinnis, is a leger man, an armed courier working freelance for individuals and businesses who need to transfer information in the old-fashioned analogmanner. This is a world where the cloud has come crashing down, and the “security” of the internet has been exposed as nothing more than fiction. Combining elements of sci-fi and noir narrative, Gerry Duggan and David O’Sullivan have created a world that, curiously enough, smacks of the many of the events we see unfolding on the nightly news. Although they may not have fully anticipated the inroads of Mueller’s Russian investigation, the ongoing revelations of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, or the various security breaches we learn about on almost a daily basis, Gerry and David, along with the help of colorist Jordie Bellaire, have established a premise that just may be the logical conclusion to what we’re witnessing now. In this interview, Derek talks with his guests about the genesis of this new series, their process of collaboration, the injection of both noir and humor elements, and the various narrative questions established in this first issue.
We are joined by Gerry Duggan to talk about his writing career on tv, film and comics. He shares his time working on Attack of the Show and how he transitioned to comics. We discuss his current run on Deadpool which he co writes with Brian Posehn as well as the digital first Deadpool story THE GAUNTLET. Plus his recent takeover of the cosmic adventure comic NOVA.
