Legendary Writer Mark Russell Discusses His Latest Graphic Novel Billionaire Island and the World at Large.
Legendary writer, Mark Russell (Second Coming, Prez, Judge Dredd: Under Seige) discusses his latest graphic novel Billionaire Island, due out on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.
I spoke with Mark Russell about life, the state of the world we live, his disco lights, Second Coming and the events that influenced Billionaire Island.
Russell’s satirical writing style has the finger on the pulse of what both wings deem ideal and ridiculous from panel to panel in the ultimate non-partisan storytelling, simply because there is enough to make fun of on both sides of the preverbal aisle.
Official Press Release:

Welcome to Billionaire Island, where anything goes…if you can afford it. But the island’s ultra-rich inhabitants are about to learn that their ill-gotten gains come at a VERY high price.
“Social commentary with an uncompromising determination and a caustic wit, Billionaire Island is going to get readers talking every bit as much as [Mark Russell‘s] Second Coming.” —Broken Frontier
“A nasty piece of art that bares its teeth at the 1 percent with a level of bloodlust not seen nearly enough in the graphic medium.” —CBR
“The most emotionally devastating comic book in recent memory.” -Vox, on Russell & Pugh’s The Flintstones
