Jesse Lonergan joins to talk about the upcoming Mignola-verse comic Miss Truesdale and the Fall of Hyperborea, as well as their sci-fi graphic novel Arca. Dave and Jesse talk about the success of Hedra’s innovative layouts, working with Mike Mignola, designing pages to slow down readers, how Droma/Prime might be Jesse’s “magnum opus” and much more!
On Comic Book Herald’s Interviews I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. CBH Interviews is an audio annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
