Comic writer Jeremy Whitley returns to Graphic Policy Radio to discuss his new series Illegal which is currently a part of a Kickstarter project.

Illegal is a near future science fiction story about about an America in which the rich live in a lush paradise in and on top of skyscrapers, while the poor literally live in their shadows below. All of the citizens are tracked and monitored by a microchip under their skin from the time they are born and anyone undocumented is sent to deportation camps where few actually survive long enough to be deported.

Our heroine, Gianna DelRey is an undocumented immigrant who fled with her mother from an abusive household when she was young. She's survived by scrubbing floors and allowing her rich employers to treat her like dirt.  When one turns on her and she finds herself on the run, Gianna will discover that when everyone is constantly tracked, being able to movie invisibly is something that many will pay a high price for. Will she keep running or will she decide to take a stand?
