Today we were able to check out the latest episode of the podcast Comadres y Comics featuring the hosts' takes on the first two issues of Zahra The Shadow Flame.
Reactions to the comic were split, but the discussion the comic starts is intense, rousing, interesting and important. For around 45 minutes hosts Jen, Sara and Kristen, get into exploitation, representation, stereotyping, and a whole host of other topics stemming from Zahra. And although the book didn't win all of them over, we think the conversation as a whole is just the kind of thing we hoped for when we were creating this comic.
Pharaoh Miles and our friends at Graphic Policy have posted a great interview with us!!! Here's a excerpt:

To promote our Kickstarter campaign, Rakan and I appeared on a Livestream on YouTube and Instagram yesterday afternoon, in a session moderated by our friend and fellow indie filmmaker Shelby Baldock, co-director of the documentary Bombie.
We had a great time and thanks again for all of you that tuned in, commented and even video chatted!
