This week on Creannotators, I talked with creator Sloane Leong about A Map To The Sun, the graphic novel’s incredible colors, studying the game of basketball, and her sci fi Image series Prism Stalker.
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!
A Map to the Sun from First Second books is one of my favorite new comics of 2020, a poetic exploration of five girls of color forming a women’s basketball team in their underprivileged high school. Sloane Leong’s expressive artwork and inventive use of color creates a vivid emotional journey well worth reading.
