On today's episode I talk to comics writer Magdalene Visaggio. Born in Long Island but raised in Richmond, VA, Magdalene has been making comics for over a decade, but it wasn't until 2016 that she began to garner acclaim thanks to her series Kim & Kim, which netted Magdalene both an Eisner Award nomination and a GLAAD Award nomination. Since then she's written a number of great comics including Eternity Girl, Morning in America and currently, she writes Doctor Mirage for Valiant. In addition to all this, her series Vagrant Queen was bought by Syfy and will be premiering on a television near you sometime in 2020.

This week’s guest is Magdalene Visaggio. You might know her work from comics such as Kim & Kim, Quantum Teens Are Go, and that really awesome Superman story in last year’s Cursed Comics Calvacade. She’s writing a new series due out in March from Oni Press called Morning in America. I got a look at the first issue and it’s pretty awesome. What I liked most about this conversation is Magdalene’s perspective on the ‘80s. Morning in America is set in 1983 so there’s a nostalgia factor in there, but she brings a really interesting viewpoint to it that really explains a generation’s current fascination with that decade. Magdalene can be found on Twitter as @MagsVisaggs. Morning in America #1 is due out on March 6th.

Comics Alternative Interviews: Magdalene Visaggio and Sonny Liew
The Comics Alternative
Time Codes: 00:26 - Introduction 02:57 - Setup of interview 05:11 - Interview with Magdalene Visaggio 29:37 - Interview with Sonny Liew 58:43 - Wrap up 59:20 - Contact us A couple of weeks ago the first issue of Eternity Girl, the latest title in DC’s Young Animal line, was released. Written by Magdalene Visaggio and with art by Sonny Liew, this is a title that combines parts of Element Girl with a dash of Kid Eternity, and mixes things up in an offbeat way that fits perfectly in the Young Animal world. On this interview episode, Derek talks with both Mags and Sonny about this new series, and both kindly agreed to be on the podcast. Listeners of The Comics Alternative will know that both creators have been on the show before. Derek spoke with Mags briefly at HeroesCon a couple of years ago, and then he along with Gwen interviewed Sonny around the publication of his landmark book, The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye, a work that went on to win three Eisner Awards last year: Best Writer/Artist, Best U.S. Edition of International Material - Asia, and Best Publication Design. Since Sonny lives halfway around the world, in Singapore, there was a challenge in trying to find a common occasion when everyone could be online and all talk together. So they decided to break up the interview where Derek would talk with both creators separately, asking both similar questions, while at the same time focusing on each one’s unique contribution to the series. This show begins with Mags Visaggio, with Derek asking her about the genesis of Eternity Girl as well as the differences between creating for Black Mask Comics and now working at DC. After that, you’ll hear a conversation with Sonny Liew. He talks about his visual approach to this unstable, composite character and how his art style is particularly suited to the title. Derek also asks Sonny what it’s like to be a multiple Eisner Award-winning artist and how his professional life has changed since last year’s accolades.
In our newest team-up episode, we talk with Eisner-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio about her work on books such as Kim & Kim and Quantum Teens Are Go, what it's like to write for licensed properties, which comics she's been getting into, and her new Young Animal series with Sonny Liew and Chris Chuckry, Eternity Girl!
