Immigration Reform, Shane MacGowan’s Teeth, and Capt. Jack Harkness
This week on The Comics Alternative the Two Guys with PhDs speak with the creators behind Gone to Amerikay (Vertigo), Derek McCulloch and Colleen Doran. Here you get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this important work, including the genesis of the book, McCulloch’s strategies for crafting his narratives, the curious inspirations for Doran’s art, and the incredible synergy that brought the project to life. Andy and Derek R. also talk with Colleen and Derek M. about some of their other projects, including Colleen’s A Distant Soil and Orbiter (along with Warren Ellis), as well as Derek M.’s graphic novel, Stagger Lee (with Shepherd Hendrix). What better way to start off July, the month of our nation’s independence, than discussing a book that taps deep into the American Experience?
