On this interview show, Andy W. and Derek have the pleasure of talking with Jeremy Sorese. His book, Curveball, was published by Nobrow Press in late 2015, but it’s up this year for a Lambda Literary Award in the “LGBT Graphic Novels” category. Those award winners will be announced in June, and the guys talk with Jeremy about the attention that Curveball has been receiving. This is his first long-form comic, and Jeremy describes it as a queer sci-fi romance. The story takes place in an indeterminate future, but the generic elements take a backseat to character relationships. At the same time, Jeremy talks with the guys about how science fiction is an appropriate platform to explore facets of identity. Derek and Andy also ask their guest about the series for which he’s more popularly known, Stephen Universe, and the other work he’s done for BOOM! Studios. They also discuss his interests in short narratives, the unbelievable mileage he’s gotten out of his early comic, “Love Me Forever! Oh! Oh! Oh!”, and what projects he’s working on currently.
Jimmy went to MoCCA over the weekend and got some great interviews. In this Nobrow special, you’ll hear his chats with Sam Bosma (Fantasy Sports) and Jeremy Sorese (Curveball). Jimmy is a big basketball fan like Sam which is a good thing since his book Fantasy Sports deals with the sport! And hear them both correctly pick the NCAA men’s basketball champion! In his talk with Jeremy, they have a great deal to say about relationships, friendships and more. They even get a little Steven Universe love in there as well since Jeremy wrote the comics. Both were really great interviews so do give a listen! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
