This week on Creannotators, I talked with writer Lonnie Nadler about Black Stars Above, writing the X-Men event Age of X-Man, and a whole lot more.
On Comic Book Herald’s ‘Creannotators’ 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. Creannotators is an audio/visual annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
Part of Vault’s “Nightfall” horror line of comics, Black Stars Above is set in Canada during the late 1800s, and focuses on a young woman’s escape from her furtrapper family into the snowy, dark, and occasionally wilds of the north. It’s “cosmic horror” but on a very insular level.
