Our Man in Dallas

This past weekend Derek attended Dallas Fan Expo 2017, and there he was able to talk with several creators and publishers for the podcast. Some of his guests are individuals who have been on the podcast before — either while at conventions or on regular interview episodes — although some are appearing on The Comics Alternative for the first time. Those talking with Derek on this on-location show include Robert Wilson IV, Terry Moore, Raechel Alexis Gasparac, Ed Brisson, Joe Eisma, and Matt Hawkins. Enjoy, won’t you?

Be sure to check out today’s companion on-location episode where Andy talks with a few creators at the Sumter Comic Arts Symposium!

 

 

Comics Alternative Interviews: Terry Moore

Endings

RachelRising-banner

On May 25, the final issue of Rachel Rising will be released. This has been a landmark horror/gothic series, an intelligent and multifaceted narrative exploring the parameters of history, gender, community, morality, and the nature of violence…and doing so without following the usual generic conventions and formulas. To mark this publishing event, Derek has the pleasure of talking with the series creator Terry Moore. What began in August 2011 as an undead murder mystery will now come full circle as we learn in the final issue, according to Terry, the identity of Rachel’s killer and the connections that inextricably bind the two. In their conversation, Terry talks with Derek about the genesis of Rachel Rising, the functions of its various actors, the philosophies that propel the narrative, and how his organic style of storytelling has come to define the series. Terry also places the title within the context of his other work, most notably Strangers in Paradise and Echo, and discusses his evolution as a writer within the comics medium. Derek also asks him about his plans regarding other media and the possibility of bringing Rachel Rising to television. This isn’t the first time that Derek has talked with Terry — he spoke with him briefly at the Dallas Comic Con in 2013, and he conducted a longer interview with him for the blog in 2014 — but this is the only time he has had him on the podcast for a substantive one-on-one interview.
