I first noticed Artful Daggers, an ongoing series published through Monkeybrain, due to the artwork of Andrew Losq, who creates incredible abstract page sequences. Having read the first issue, I decided to catch up on the rest once the first story arc had concluded – that’s the benefit of a comics publishing model like Monkeybrain, after all.
By the time I returned a few weeks ago and read the nine-issue arc, I’d already interviewed co-writer Adam P. Knave about his other Monkeybrain series Amelia Cole – so it seemed like a good time to catch up with the whole Artful Daggers team of Knave, Losq, and co-writer Sean E. Williams about their first storyline, how it came together, and what their plans were going forward. Happily, they were kind enough to chat with me about the series.
If you haven’t read Artful Daggers, I’d recommend you give it a try. With the first nine issues now all available online, it’s a good time to binge-read the whole of the first storyline in one go.
