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?

It's Monday which means a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio. It's Memorial Day, and we have a very special episode with guest Scott Kaufman, who you might know as SEK.
Memorial Day is when we remember the men and women who died while serving the United States Armed Forces, and we're spending it discussing Marvel Comics' Star Spangled veteran who has given his life for his country Captain America.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is still in theaters and the highest grossing film globally of 2014 so far. It tackles the very real issues of privacy, the "security state," civil liberties, and militarization of technology. We'll be discussing all this and more!
Scott is the proprietor of the AV Club's Internet Film School and an associate editor at The Raw Story. He also writes for Lawyers, Guns & Money, podcasts, and is an expert on Game of Thrones.
Rozemarijn Oudejans studied at the University of Utrecht and the Arnhem Institute of the Arts in The Netherlands, and in Canada at the School of the Photographic Arts Ottawa and the Ottawa School of Art. In 2007 she received the Justine Bromiley Memorial Scholarship at the Ottawa School of Art for her photography and printmaking work. Her works have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Canada and The Netherlands and can be found in private collections internationally. Rozemarijn also works as a graphic designer for a nation wide not-for-profit organisation.
Rozemarijn gets her inspiration from daily life and nature around her and her work is influenced by her Dutch roots as well as her new home in Canada. She enjoys working with bold colours or just black and white, emphasizing shape and contrast. In her linocut and woodcut prints she reduces the subject matter to symbolic simplicity, sometimes combined with typographic designs to convey a message. In her etchings you can often discover detail that previously has gone unnoticed and shows the beauty of ordinary, everyday objects that we normally pass by without taking a second look.Visit http://rozmarijnoudejans.com
