It’s finally happened. I got totally peer pressured into reading a comic. Not only that, but in getting the creators on the show too. Although let’s be real about Witchblood for a minute. I definitely would have read this anyway and thought that I should get the creators on the show. That cover + all the hype I’d seen about this one + Vault Comics = I’ll pick it up. It’s simple math.
Listen in as Lisa Sterle and Matthew Erman (featuring a special appearance from their dog Rory) come talk about the creation of a comic about a biker witch from Mars (said only because it fits the reference I’m hoping you catch), working with someone you can’t really get away from, and more of an answer to my standard “Do you have any advice for people looking to get into making comics?” question than I’ve gotten from anyone so far. Not that I’m complaining at all.
Learn such things as:
- How can you fit 90s anime and 50s style references into the same work?
- What should you look for when you’re looking for a publisher?
- Is it possible that neither Matthew nor Lisa has seen Avatar the Last Airbender? And why, disturbing as that fact is, it really is OK and we shouldn’t hate them for it.
- And so much more!
