Xeric Award-winning cartoonist Josh Neufeld returns with The Vagabonds #2: Of Two Minds, featuring an array of Neufeld’s comics collaborations.
Collaboration has always been part of Neufeld’s comix repertoire — with Dean Haspiel in Keyhole and R. Walker in Titans of Finance, with Duplex Planet Illustrated’s David Greenberger, and with American Splendor’s Harvey Pekar (still ongoing). And in The Vagabonds #2, that tradition continues — with some strange twists and turns. Contributors include Pekar, Greenberger, Walker, artist Martha Rosler, award-winning poet/memoirist Nick Flynn, literary cult figure Eileen Myles, and the New York downtown theater company The Civilians — as well such offbeat collaborators as The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby,” a 1980 issue of Superman, and Neufeld’s own mirror reflection!
A good collaboration is a conversation between artist and writer, each challenging the other, with the result truly being Of Two Minds.
