Derf Backderf and I dive into the making of KENT STATE and the skill-building and knowledge of the comic book medium he developed that made it possible for him to produce such a complex and comprehensive OGN.
Regarding KENT STATE and MY FRIEND DAHMER, we talk about how he used the medium to create unseen moments. We also cover how he protects his physical and mental health while working on such dark topics, and look at today's social and political turmoil through the lens of the Kent State events in 1970.
Finally, we talk about the right-wing cultural warriors' attacks on MY FRIEND DAHMER, libraries, and LGBTQ themed graphic novels.
