February 2009 will mark the release of Derek
McCulloch's second graphic novel, Displaced Persons. Created in
collaboration with artist Rantz Hoseley, Displaced Persons tells the
story of a uniquely twisted and tragic family history spanning the most
turbulent hundred years in the history of mankind: the twentieth century saw 99
wars, 16 famines, 19 pandemics, 14 genocides, and one family lost hopelessly in
Displaced Persons Update
As mentioned in the last update, Displaced Persons IS coming out but is very late. The cause for the delay is artist Rantz Hoseley's unanticipatedly huge workload putting together Comic Book Tattoo, the anthology of comics stories based on songs by Tori Amos. CBT is done and out now, and Rantz is back at work drawing Displaced Persons. His last report is that the art is about 2/3 complete. We're aiming now to debut the book at the New York Comicon in February 2009. Further updates as events warrant.
