Adam Gorham reflects on mutants, Jughead and more at MCX 2018

Here’s my chat with Adam Gorham at Mississauga Comic Expo 2018. Podcast available on Apple Podcasts.

Adam Gorham

Adam is a comic artist based in Mississauga, Ontario. He’s worked for numerous publishers, including IDW, Valiant, Archie, and most recently Marvel Comics on Rocket and New Mutants: Dead Souls.

During our chat, Adam talked about his recent work on The New Mutants: Dead Souls and how he managed working with characters that have their own fan base. He also offered his insight into Jughead: The Hunger and where he gets his inspiration for his cover work.

Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.

Bleeding Cool reported from the North Carolina Comic Con that Jeff Lemire has announced he is done with work-for-hire comics. Other than finishing The Terrifics in March and a certain unannounced DC Black Label project, he’s going to concentrate on his creator-owned projects such as Gideon Falls, Black Hammer and others. More details are available on

And speaking of future projects, Jeff Lemire recently posted a tweet that he and artist Dean Ormston have entered into a partnership with Legendary, the film/TV company, to develop multiple film and television projects based on the Black Hammer universe. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this great news in the coming months.

By now, everyone has heard of the passing of comic book legend Stan Lee. Everyone in the industry has passed along their thoughts about what he meant to them as a major force in both comics, film and TV. He will not be forgotten.
