Get An Exclusive Look at Darryl Makes Comics’ DMC #2

Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez

You seem like the lynch pin to this operation. What is your official title at Darryl Makes Comics?

Edgar Miranda-Rodriguez: Officially, you open up the comic book and the title reads, editor-in-chief. I play a very active role. We are a very small publishing company. Darryl, DMC, is our publisher and he funds the entire company. He, myself, and occasionally Riggs will sit down periodically and brainstorm the directions of the stories. Usually I’ll develop a plot and I’ll present the plot, and Darryl and I will bounce it back and forth, hash it out. From there we’ll bring in a seasoned writer to really give it the substance and structure it needs to fit the form of a traditional graphic novel. This time around we brought in Greg Pak. Greg actually did the forward for our first book, he loved the first book.

Tell us about the graffiti element in the comics.

I was very fortunate to become very good friends with a lot of amazing artists growing up. MARE 139 worked with us on the first book. He did the graffiti for the cover, he did some original pieces throughout the book, and he curated…he brought in a lot of graffiti writers to lend their tag. For the second book I wanted to bring in my other friend KET, who I used to freelance write with back in the ‘90s when he was running Stress Magazine. KET and I were both hardcore comic book heads. KET used to come to all these Marvel Comic art shows I threw. Even with the first book, a lot of people don’t know, but KET sat down with me, looked at the pages, gave me some advice.
