With True Believers 2018 fast approaching, we put 5 Questions to Alex Hahn...

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

Their next purchase! …I have a great range of books, prints and merchandise featuring my different characters. My books range from 100-page graphic novels to small hand-made zines, so hopefully there’s something for all tastes and budgets.

What do you love about creating comics?

Telling stories visually and considering the design from panel to page to object. When I first read the finished book is the best moment because I learn what worked and what I want to improve, but still celebrating having created something new.

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

The time! Comics take a lot of work, so even for quick ideas, there’s quite a bit of commitment involved.

What do you love about being at a comic con?

It’s all about being out there and having people find my work. As an illustrator, much of my work is done in my studio, alone, so seeing the results of that effort is awesome. It’s also great to meet other creators and friendly faces from tabling around the country.

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

Luke Pearson’s Hilda series is always great and I’m excited for the Netflix series. I really enjoy Rachael Smith’s work, too, so I’d recommend her deluxe edition of ‘Wired Up Wrong’, even though I haven’t got it yet!
