Shawn James' interview for Animated Apparel Company

Shawn James' interview for Animated Apparel Company

Shawn James is one of the most interesting and insightful writers that I've had the pleasure of meeting. I remember I started following him when I saw his comments on several social media platforms since we tend to be in the same circles and I was impressed by his knowledge of the comic book industry as a business, the importance of proper storytelling and dedication to making his characters really human and interesting.


He has been writing books as an independent author for many years now, with The Man Crisis, John Haynes and Isis being some of his successful works, often reflecting his views and feelings about several aspects of life, especially when it comes to the black community. Instead of trying to pin black men and women down in a single trait or social group, he is a huge defender of people’s sense of individuality and diversity of thought.


I had the opportunity of doing this long interview with Shawn and we addressed several aspects of his career, plus his views on modern society, Literature, the ups and downs of being an independent writer and the current state of the comic book industry. Hope you enjoy it.

Aaron Lopresti Interview I Reviving the Garbage Man series, crowdfunding, and what it takes to make it in the comic book industry.

Aaron Lopresti is a name that comic books fans are familiar with. He has been in the industry for quite some time now and in the mid-2000s he provided his detailed, slick and beautiful art to some of Marvel’s most interesting projects at the time, such as Brian Reed’s Ms. Marvel (my personal favorite Marvel run of this century) and Greg Pak’s Planet Hulk miniseries, establishing him as one of the most talented artists in the industry. He later moved to DC, where he is currently working, drawing great Wonder Woman/Conan stories and multiple covers.

But Aaron has also decided to revive one of his properties, Garbage Man, and has launched a crowdfunding campaign, which you can back, as part of a personal initiative to break out on his own as a creator. I had the opportunity of speaking with him to acquire his insight on a variety of topics.

Darryl Banks Interview: Comic book artwork, and an overview of his very exciting career in the industry!

The term “underrated” is thrown around way too often, but there are really very few cases when it actually looks the part and this is the case of artist Darryl Banks. The man has been one of the finest artists in the comic book industry in the last thirty years or so and contributed to the creation of the Green Lantern of the 90s, Kyle Rayner (who also happens to be my favorite character).

But Banks’ career doesn’t stop there, having created more characters, collaborated on some very good runs and overall leaving his mark on the industry. I had the opportunity of talking with him for an interview and I got his insight on many different topics.
