Symbolia Writer and Illustrator Spotlight

EI4Vo_7hmsFkptIPI_W6jd5ZRUJGuZJ8U1Ova3rBvbgWhat’s going on everyone? Some of you may recall that I’m working for this super cool comics journalism tablet magazine called Symbolia? Well we just started doing little interviews with the brilliant people behind the latest issue, Heroines.

We want to bring you closer to the story and the people actually on the ground doing the reporting. So far we’ve talked to Dan Archer, the writer and illustrator of “Meera’s Story” and Jess Rulifsson who illustrated “The Decisions.”

Check out the interviews right here!

I tried to dig a little deeper into the motivations and feelings behind their work, and then include at least one silly question, sort of a “and now for something completely different” moment. I like the way they’ve turned out and I’m happy to share these bad boys with you. We’ll be doing one a day, so be sure to check out Symboliamag.com often for more!

There are five complete tales inside: LUNA OF CAIRO, THE DECISIONS, MEERA’S STORY, and two different but connected stories in DECLASSIFIED. You’ll learn about the difficult circumstances of a belly dancer in Cairo, the harsh realities of life after the military and Guantanamo Bay, and the insidious human trafficking trade in Nepal.
