On this Episode Jeff and Russell discuss Gone to Amerikay by Derek McCullough and Colleen Doran, with colors by Jose Villarubia. We talk about what it means when people say that a place is a character in a story, some of the challenges of telling a story without the need for a cliffhanger at the end of each issue, and more!
A quick correction: Derek McCullough is Canadian, although he lives in Oakland, California.
Here are some panels to refer to:
One of the panels in which Doran depicts all three interconnected stories on a single page, each “era” blending into one another.
And the image we discussed specifically with regard to an “open” layout, each image leading to the next without panels or gutters.
