This week on Creannotators, I talked with writer Darcy Van Poelgeest about Little Bird and the upcoming sequel Precious Metal.
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!
Little Bird: The Fight For Elder’s Hope, one of my favorite comics of the last few years, explores a dystopic but parallel earth where the United Nations of America rules via theocracy, in a world rampant with “dark science” and genetic modifications including a resurrection gene. It’s a gory, visceral, poetic exploration of resistance against theocratic fascist regimes.
