This week's guests are Kirsten Thompson and James B. Emmett. The former is the writer and the latter is the editor of the magical mystery thriller, I AM HEXED. The comic tells the story of witches fighting for equality in the backdrop of Washington, D.C. during the 1960's, which in and of itself serves as a metaphor for our current political climate and the advancement of LGBTQIAPK+ people. Kirsten and James chat with Adrian regarding these issues found in the comic as well discuss the #MeToo movement, manga and representation in comics.
I AM HEXED is coming soon to Kickstarter. Visit www.iamhexed.com for more info!
