The Two Guys have discussed 2dcloud comics in past — see their review of Austin English’s Gulag Casual as well as the coverage of last year’s Ignatz Awards — but on this episode, they take a deep dive into the publisher’s recent releases. They do this by interviewing three of the creators who have had, or will have, new books coming out from 2dcloud: Gina Wynbrandt, Will Dinksi, and MariNaomi. The guys talk with all three about their recent publications — Someone Please Have Sex with Me, Trying Not to Notice, and Turning Japanese — but they also use the opportunity to delve into each artist’s broader career. For example, Andy and Derek talk with Gina about her history with, and preference for, fan-inspired minicomics. In their conversation with Will, they ask about his 2dcloud comics as well as the Top Shelf book Finger Prints and his self-published projects. And with Mari, they discuss her series of autobiographical efforts beginning with Kiss and Tell: A Romantic Resume Ages 0 to 22 and leading all the way to her upcoming I Thought You Hated Me. Powerpaola, yet another 2dcloud author, couldn’t join the guys this time around, but readers should definitely check out her new book, Virus Tropical.
Much thanks to Raighne Hogan for helping to make these interviews possible!
