KYLE BAKER ON SPECIAL FORCES AND MORE
by Zack SmithWhether it’s his hilarious observations on family life in The Bakers, the wild satire of such graphic novels as Why I Hate Saturn, The Cowboy Wally Show, or his dark look at slavery in Nat Turner, Kyle Baker has constantly proven to be one of comics’ most diverse and idosyncratic talents. Now, the multiple Eisner-winner will take on the U.S. military in Image Comics’ new miniseries Special Forces, about an autistic boy recruited by the Army….a tale that’s based on an unfortunately true story.
A casual chat with the multitalented Baker soon proved as entertaining as his comics, as he covered everything from his decision to go with Image after years of self-publishing, the problems he faced writing and illustrating DC’s award-winning Plastic Man series, and where you might soon find The Bakers in animated form.
