Here’s my chat with Emmanuelle Chateauneuf at Mississauga Comic Expo 2018. Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts.
Emmanuelle is a writer and artist from Ontario whose work includes The Feathertale Review, Captain Canuck and her online comic strip series ‘The Daily Comics’. Her most recent project is the graphic novel Queen Street published by Chapterhouse Comics.
During our chat, Emmanuelle chatted about the origin of the story that she calls a ‘slice of life’, the reaction from readers, what she’s learned from the experience. Emmanuelle talked about her artistic influences. She also hinted about what’s in store for her second book. Emmanuelle offers some heartfelt advice about being the hero of your own story.
