Exclusive Interview: Roughneck Author, Artist Jeff Lemire

Depending on which aisle of the comic book store you frequent most, you probably know writer and artist Jeff Lemire for such super heroic books as Hawkeye: Hawkeyes or Moon Knight: Lunatic, for his ongoing sci-fi series Descender, or for such real-world stories as Essex County. It is in the latter section that we find his new graphic novel Roughneck (hardcover, digital), an emotional story of a man whose glory days are behind him.
