Our Tuesday Trade Paperback is ‘AmericaTown’ from Boom Studios by Bradford Winters, Larry Cohen, and artist Daniel Irizarri. Apologies that this Tuesday Trade is neither a trade (it’s a Hardcover) nor released on Tuesday. ‘AmericaTown’ tells the story of an undocumented immigrant… from America. In a near-future where the US economy has collapsed and migrants flood to places like Buenos Aires, AmericaTown’s protagonist is smuggled into Argentina, into an enclave of American immigrants, trying to find safety and opportunity in this reversal of the standard US immigration narrative. TwoPlai discusses the idea of immigration narratives in this context, and how AmericaTown gets or doesn’t get at the larger issues interlaced in a story such as this.
