What happens when a stoner working at a deli comes face-to-face with a psychic rat hungering for irradiated sandwiches? The answer can be found in “Rat King,” Thomas Dorton’s contribution to The Deli Counter of Justice. AJ and Eric talk with Thomas about how the superhero cartoons he grew up on were surprisingly decent, how his 9th grade English teacher encouraged him to write, and how his (really quite impeccable) taste in music influences his writing.
Next: on Tuesday, October 14, AJ and Eric rap with our cover designer, Karen Wellenkamp (@QuoterGal). That’s also when you’ll get to see the cover she and Blair J. Campbell worked so hard putting together!
