Interview: Robert Venditti, author of The Homeland Directive

Jun 7, 2011

Robert Venditti is a comic book creator most known for his title The Surrogates, which was adapted by Disney into a major motion picture starring Bruce Willis. His comics career began in 2002, when Venditti met Chris Staros from Top Shelf. The meeting clearly went well, for Venditti ended up not only working for the publisher, but also climbing the company ladder. Later, Venditti shared a manuscript with Staros, which resulted in the publication of The Surrogates in 2005. Last year, he created a brand-new, wildly different graphic novel, The Homeland Directive, a look at privacy (or the lack thereof) in the 21st century. Here’s what Venditti had to say about his latest graphic novel.
