And to finish up our little Irish-themed section, Colleen Doran offers a preview of Gone to Amerikay, the graphic novel she’s been working on for the last two years. It’s written by Eisner-nominated author Derek McCulloch, with colors by Jose Villarubia — the final book will come out sometime in 2012 from Vertigo.
This story, a multi-generational tale of Irish immigration, will have taken two years to complete. I have two months of work left. There have been some terrible shake-ups at Vertigo, but thanks to all for standing by us and helping us to bring this book home.
