"KILL OR BE KILLED is our take on the vigilante killer genre, which I hope means it's not what people usually expect when they think of that genre. It's NOT about a guy whose parents—or wife and kids—are killed by the mob and now he's out for revenge. No, it's not about a hero, even, really...it's about a (mostly) average guy who is suddenly thrust into a situation he can barely understand—where for reasons I don't want to spoil, he is forced to kill bad people. Forced to become judge and executioner. And the series is about how he adapts to this secret dilemma, and how he learns to become a killer and survive.

But more than that, it's also, you know: "If you had to kill a bad person, who would you pick?" Like, is there someone whose death would have a real impact on society for the better? How hard is it to find someone who truly deserves to die? And what does killing people do to you, mentally and physically? Can you hide this side of yourself from your friends and loved ones?"

"The real world stuff is always grounded, and we focus a lot on the characters and the environment. The situations are things we know and have seen. That familiarity creates a sense of realness in the reader. We then move away from that a bit, but we always keep one foot on the ground.

With the fantasy, the environment and the characters. Their facial expressions. The quiet moments. There is a scene in issue #2 between two of the more fantastic fantasy characters, and they are having a casual conversation that isn’t full of pompous fantasy talk that I think makes them more like characters than caricatures.

With the fourth arc beginning this week, it's time we return to Birthright. Hopefully you've all seen that post on the first issue I did a while back and checked out the series, since it's really damn good. If not, click here to read before checking out this post.

"The majority of how we address faith in the story is through Reverend Anderson (played by Philip Glenister), because he is a Baptist preacher. Patrick (Fugit)’s character Kyle is secular, so he doesn’t really believe in the stuff that he’s experiencing. Which I think is a fun dynamic and a good place to have that character in. As the series progresses, Anderson will see Kyle’s side of things, and sometimes Kyle will see Anderson’s side of things. That’s a good interplay between them. But also I think we try not to take a stance. There is no “this is the way religion is” or “this is the way you should believe.” We try to keep things open to interpretation as much as possible. We don’t ever want to come off like this show is preaching or evangelizing in any way." - Robert Kirkman
