Episode 20 - Southern Cross
Episode 20 – Southern Cross

This week on Sequential Fiction Brian interviews the artist of Southern Cross – Andy Belanger.  We talk about what went in to creating the sci-fi space epic, what it’s like working with writer Becky Cloonan, how long the story has been in development, and what we can expect from the next volume of the series.

It was a great interview, and we touched on everything from the great support of Image Comics, and how much of the industry Image is influencing, to the problem of kids not getting into comics anymore.

Andy is a lot of fun to talk to, and we had a really great chat that I think any fan of comics will enjoy.

Our Comic Pick of the Week this week is Southern Cross Volume 1.

If you haven’t read Southern Cross yet, I highly recommend it. It’s a cross between 1970’s and 80’s sci fi like Alien and Blade Runner, with a healthy dose of Event Horizon thrown in for good measure.
