gM- I've been checking out the updates and preview artwork for Solomon Azua #1, and I've gotta say, I'm really looking forward to reading it. How did you come up with this character, and what inspired this particular slice of his story?
gM- It's always good to see black protagonists, but we are conspicuously absent from science fiction stories (at least in movies). Was there a particular reason you chose to have Solomon be a person of color, or was it more of an afterthought?
gM- The whole book appears to have a ton of design (aliens, clothing, uniforms, architecture, spaceships), which is typical of sci-fi stories. How long have you been sitting on this story? Was the design work difficult, or does world-building come pretty naturally to you?
gM- Solomon Azua is set up as a 6 Issue series. Are you planning on doing more, or does Issue six wrap up all you have in mind for the character?
gM- Does Solomon's world fit into a larger continuity? Do you expect to spin off other characters in this "universe"?
gM- What's next? How soon can people who buy this expect the next issue (you know comics readers... that's always the question!)? Are you diving straight into issue two, or should readers expect a lag time?
gM- What's the best way fans and retailers can get the grubby little hands on Solomon Azua#1?
that's what's up! thanks for the interview fam!
so, you heard 'im! if you're gonna be at any of the conventions here in Dallas, it's easy to run up on Jake and cop an issue (or more, depending on when you'll be in the house), and other people should harass your comic shop to contact Jake at the email address above and order , or hit him up yourself. but get your hands on Solomon Azua #1 by any means!
