Derek and I had the great pleasure to interview Jonathan Case recently about his new graphic novel from Dark Horse called The New Deal. You can hear that interview here, where we discuss not only Case’s new book, but also the award-winning true crime graphic novel Green River Killer: A True Detective Story with art by Case and written by Jeff Jensen. The book has just been reissued in trade paperback. Hope you’ll give us a listen!

October has become the new November. People are already crazy busy, so much so that I wanted to bring to your attention a few things that I don’t want you to miss:
The Small Press Expo (SPX) last weekend was a real blast, but I still haven’t completely recovered from it. Derek and I had a great time there, but we also interviewed and spoke with a lot of people and discussed the Ignatz Awards at length. Derek did the majority of the interviews including a great interview with Bill Griffith about his new book Invisible Ink: My Mother’s Secret Love Affair with a Famous Cartoonist and more.
I’ve read (and am continuing to read) a reasonably healthy amount of graphic novels in June. Here are the first of those books:
Derek and I had the great pleasure of interviewing comics writer and artist Rick Geary the other day for The Comics Alternative. You can hear that podcast here as well as Geary’s first interview with the Two Guys back in 2013.
Man, things have been busy on the comics scene, but in a good way. First, Derek and I recently reviewed four new titles on a recent podcast:
Derek and I had a great time interviewing comics creator Dylan Horrocks the other day at The Comics Alternative, discussing his new book Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen, his previous book (one of my all-time favorites) Hicksville, as well as his prose short story “Steam Girl” and much, much more. I hope you’ll give the podcast a listen!
I can’t tell you what a blast it was to interview comics writer Brian K. Vaughan recently. I just don’t have the words. But rather than listening to me talk about it, I hope you’ll listen to the interview Derek, Andy K. and I did with Vaughan over at The Comics Alternative Podcast. And after you’ve listened, we hope you’ll join us on the forums to discuss more of Vaughan’s work or any other comics-related topics. Enjoy!
