SOLRAD has partnered with Noah Van Sciver to publish a selection of his Cartoonist Chats videos! Today we feature his discussion with Derf Backderf, an alternative cartoonist whose comic My Friend Dahmer has risen to national and international acclaim. Derf’s latest book, KENT STATE: FOUR DEAD IN OHIO, is a dramatic recreation of the events of the Kent State Massacre, where in May of 1970, the National Guard opened fire on unarmed protesters of the Vietnam War. Derf’s other work includes Trashed, which was also published by Abrams ComicArts. You can find a link to KENT STATE: FOUR DEAD IN OHIO here.
