As someone who loves Karl Kerschl’s comic strip The Abominable Charles Christopher, I was very excited that he’d get to tackle a long-form narrative with ISOLA. The gorgeously illustrated fable focuses on quiet moments and unafraid of telling the story through art more than text. I was pleased to chat with Kerschl for the second […]

For the last several years, it’s been a unique pleasure to experience a side of Gotham we’ve never seen before. Instead of a violent and gothic exploration of the things we fear, Gotham Academy has shown us that even in dark places, love and friendship can thrive. However, all good stories eventually come to an end. […]

At SDCC ’15 I talked with the Burnside Batgirl crew about their creative origins, how the look that launched a thousand cosplays came to be, how to handle creative criticism, and their earliest con experiences.

I got a chance to sit down with Brenden to discuss his inspirations, approach, and general disregard for […]
As much as we love reading about the adventures of the world’s greatest detective, you have to figure Gotham city is probably a pretty messed up place to grow up. Walking down the street could get you turned inside out by Joker gas or someone in a skintight cat outfit could shred you to pieces. Even adolescents in this world have it rough.
