We got Derek on the show this week, creator of the glorious western/fantasy comic saga The Maroon. With issue 12 just out and preparing for the 2nd graphic novel set. We go into the discussion of how to go about putting a campaign all together on a graphic novel, using Kickstarter or Indie Go Go and just getting the prints out in peoples hands.
