This week on Creannotators, I’m joined by storytellers Brian Michael Bendis and Andre Lima Araujo to talk about their new all ages graphic novel Phenomena: The Golden City of Eyes. We discuss storytelling for YA, a design-first creation process, and what’s next in the trilogy.
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!
