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?

Kieron's work in comics is varied and impressive, from Phonogram to Three, X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Journey Into Mystery, Young Avengers, his latest creator owned series The Wicked + The Divine, and so much more.

Sara Rich (author) and Timm Tayshun (publisher) join us for a special episode to discuss the new Novel "Ligatures"!
Stanza Thompson knows how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but she can't read the signs of the times. Not, at least, until the witching hour. Stanza is a young American scholar working in Belgium when her husband, Pierre, is killed in a tragic bicycle accident. Devastated by her soul mate's death, she moves back to her family home in rural Kansas. In her five-year absence, Stanza's homeland - and especially her hometown - has become darkly twisted, creating something dangerously inhospitable to outsiders. As rebellious as she is brilliant, Stanza is a stranger in the university where she teaches, even in the town where she was born and raised. With ghosts and feral hounds as companions, she stumbles upon a carving in the woods that harkens back to Ozark magic, promising to single out and kill a witch. This discovery sends Stanza on a tornadic quest into regional folklore, a string of historical murders, and the occult - and ultimately, into the mysteries of her own bloody heritage and fey destiny. Composed of idiosyncratic characters and idiomatic prose, Ligatures combines elements of the weird, southern gothic, and magical realism to create a world that is familiar and terrifying at once. Between the suspense and the quality of writing, you won’t be able to put down this spellbinding book, even long after it’s finished. Reviewers of the Kindle version have called Ligatures “perceptive” with a “dimensional and complicated” protagonist that “brings to mind the early work of Barbara Kingsolver and Margaret Atwood.”
