This week on Creannotators, I talked with writer Rodney Barnes about Killadelphia, the influence of “Hamilton,” bringing horror to vampire comics, and a 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!
Killadelphia is an exciting new series from Image Comics. In Killadelphia, a second-generation police officer reads his recently deceased father’s journal and uncovers a Vampire conspiracy through Philadelphia that runs all the way back to 2nd President of the United States, John Adams. Alongside artist Jason Shawn Alexander and team, it’s a vampire horror story woven into the fabric of America’s founding fathers and the modern state of cities like Philly.
