We play the interview Andrew did with comic artist Sean Phillips from this years TCAF Show (Toronto Comic Arts Festival) held at the Toronto Reference Library. Sean works exclusively with writer Ed Brubaker and the two have created some amazing crime noir and hard boiled comics over the years. Sean’s current work, Kill or be Killed, is a series about a young vigilante with a possible supernatural connection. Kill or Be Killed is the sixth collaboration between Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, who had previously created other crime comics like Criminal, Fatale, and The Fade Out together. The story is about Dylan, a depressed college student who attempts suicide. He survives due to unlikely events, but is soon visited by a demon who explains he spared Dylan’s life. In exchange, Dylan will be allowed to live one more month for every person he kills. The comic examines the consequences of vigilante violence and its effects on Dylan’s loved ones. For more on Sean Phillips, check out his website.
It was a great show!
