Make sure you prep for San Diego Comic-Con with our amazing new podcast featuring Sophie Campbell! Welcome, Sophie, to the Reboot Comic Book Club!
You probably know Sophie from her wonderfully funny livetweets of films like Star Wars, Fant4stic Four, and Prometheus.
Oh, and you probably have seen her amazing artwork in titles like Wet Moon, Glory, and Jem and the Holograms.
This week we discuss the Oni Press rereleases of Wet Moon, how she depicts music in a comic book, and why comics are the best medium for her to tell stories.
And for her pick of the week, Sophie chose an independent self-published comic by Jemma Salume called Avenge! Sophie comes from a tabletop RPG background, while I played a ton of RPG video games, and we both found a lot to love about this wonderful fantasy story.
Go read Avenge RIGHT NOW before you listen to the show, and then come back to hear us gush about its details and aesthetic!
Sophie on Avenge:
“I’m a big fan of Jemma’s stuff and she posted a link to her comic on Gumroad on her Tumblr or whatever, and I was like ‘Oh my god! She’s finally done this full-length comic colored! It’s this whole complete thing!’ I bought it immediately and read it, and was like, ‘this is what we should talk about.’ … I thought it was super good. I also love silent comics with no words. This hit my sweet spot, so to speak.”
