Over at ICv2, American Born Chinese’s Gene Yang and First Second’s Mark Siegel talk about the success of ABC, and what’s next for Yang. Here’s a clue – it’s a collaboration with Derek Kirk Kim, and it sounds awesome. Mark?:
Derek Kirk Kim is [drawing] it in three really different styles. It’s not so much like a showcase, but it is this kind of virtuoso tour-de-force graphic project. Gene has these three stories that have in common this paradigm shift–turn everything on its head in three different ways; it’s a very exciting project to me. In some ways it builds on what American Born Chinese does in terms of the plot surprises, but it’s also very much in its own right a very surprising set of stories, and then there’s more beyond that on the horizon.
