This week on Creannotators, I talk with creator Juni Ba about his upcoming graphic novel Djeliya from TKO Studios! We talk about the West African folklore’s influence, inspiration from Samurai Jack to Disney’s Atlantis to Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, and themes of hidden or omitted national histories, among much 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 annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
