This week’s guest is Magdalene Visaggio. You might know her work from comics such as Kim & Kim, Quantum Teens Are Go, and that really awesome Superman story in last year’s Cursed Comics Calvacade. She’s writing a new series due out in March from Oni Press called Morning in America. I got a look at the first issue and it’s pretty awesome.
What I liked most about this conversation is Magdalene’s perspective on the ‘80s. Morning in America is set in 1983 so there’s a nostalgia factor in there, but she brings a really interesting viewpoint to it that really explains a generation’s current fascination with that decade.
Magdalene can be found on Twitter as @MagsVisaggs. Morning in America #1 is due out on March 6th.
