What will people find at your table at True Believers 2018?

At my table you will find a variety of all-ages comics and zines. Including the print editions of my weekly webcomic series The Many Strange Cases of Ghost Jones.

What do you love about creating comics?

For me comics is all about storytelling. I love that it allows me to get the stories that live in my head out, for other people to read and interact with. 

What part of creating comics do you find the most challenging?

Honestly, I find the dialogue the most challenging. I often struggle to find the right words to express the feelings I want in a scene, but when I get it right I know it was worth the challenge.

What do you love about being at a comic con?

I love meeting new people and talking about comics. My favourite experiences have been when I get to talk to kids that come up to my table, and hear how excited they are to make their own comics.

What comic - other than your own - would you recommend people read?

Only one...? I read a lot of comics! But my absolute favourite at the moment is Giant Days by John Allison and Max Sarin from BoomBox!, it is a hilarious story about university life and friendship with just a hint of surrealism.
