Boum turns everyday life into award-winning webcomic

Here’s my chat with Boum. Podcast is available on iTunes.


Boum, otherwise known as Samantha Leriche-Gionet, is a cartoonist, illustrator and video game enthusiast. Her work, Boumeries, is an ongoing journal webcomic first started in February 2011. The first of the collected self-published volumes was awarded the Best Francophone Comic prize at the Expozine Awards 2011 and nominated for the Bedelys Award for Best Independent Comic the same year. Boumeries is also a nominee for the 2016 Bedelys Award and for the 2015, 2017 and 2018 Joe Shuster Awards.


During our chat, Boum talked about her artistic influences, the tools she uses to create her artwork and her preference when it comes to conventions and trade shows. She also provides an update about her upcoming projects.
