Coming (Back) Again

Paul and Derek are pleased to have Nate Powell back on the show. This time they talk with him about his new book Come Again, just released from Top Shelf Productions. They discuss the genesis of this project, the significance of the story’s setting, the unsteady balance between needs for personal isolation and the importance of community, and the narrative’s forays into the fantastic. Yet they also talk about several of Nate’s other works, including March, Swallow Me Whole, Any Empire, and Sounds of Your Name. But what comes out over the entire course of the conversation is the kind of fun these three guys have talking together. Can’t you just hear it?

Fight For Comics 111

The Warriors stand divided on Nate Powell’s new graphic novel about adolescence, Any Empire, but that does not stop Sean Lez from falling in love with a page from the book and making a quick purchase. Sean Black finally gets his butt in a theatre to see Green Lantern. Surprisingly he loves it but not for the reasons you would expect. All this and more in the new exhilarating episode of Fight For Comics.
