Q: What is the connection between the graphic novel, Black Snow: Two Drink Minimum, and the original 6 comic books?
A: Consider the comic books source material and Two Drink Minimum the official relaunch of the series. Black Snow 2.0 if you will.

Q: So the comics books mean nothing now?
A: You could look at it that way. Certainly many of the elements from the comic books are brought back in the graphic novel. Think of them as a dry run or rough draft.

Q: Why did you reboot the comic?
A: We weren’t happy with the original and thought we could do it better, which unfortunately meant starting over.

Q: What is different about the relaunch?
A: Hopefully a more mature and less convoluted plot, better art and an overall higher quality from the very beginning. Oh, also a more accurate representation of Detroit and less stupidty.

Q: So is this it? Will this be canon? Will there be more relaunches?
A: This is it, as far as I’m concerned. Alex and I certainly have no intention of ever relaunching things again, and have a story planned that will span several graphic novels.

Q: When and where is the story set?
A: Modern day (2011) Detroit.

Over the last decade the city has somewhat reduced its crime/murder, but some of that can be attributed to the fact that most of the car factories have shut down and residents have fled. It is now a strange place full of abandoned, decaying buildings. I could go on…
