Dead End Kids, was one of the breakout indie hits of 2019 with the first issue alone when one to sell more than 7000 copies over two printings. From writer, Frank Gogol, the series was a coming-of-age story that resonated with many readers. Now, with his second miniseries, No Heroine, Gogol is exploring deep themes of addiction, responsibility, and ultimately the everyday struggles of recovery. But, he's making this exploration through the lens of a Buffy-inspired heroine's journey. 

Hit play on the interview above to hear about how Gogol aims to subvert the expectations we have for our heroes and those who are suffering in our life. We even talk about the future of Dead End Kids.
