Deconstructing Comics #671: Derf’s “Kent State”

by James Ferguson


Fifty years ago, four students died when national guardsman inexplicably opened fire during an anti-war protest at Kent State University. The craziness of 2020 has hindered planned observances of the craziness of 1970, but we do get this: Derf Backderf’s Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio, a moving account of May 1-4, 1970, through the eyes of those who lost their lives.
In this episode, Tim and Kumar review the book, to be released September 8, and then a chat with Derf himself, answering our questions about the tragedy and the book.
