Here’s my chat with Jamal Campbell at MCX 2018. Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts.
Jamal is a comic book artist for DC, Marvel and BOOM! Studios.
During our chat, Jamal talked about his tools for making comics along with the reason for his move from Marvel to DC. Hint – it has something to do with a writer named Brian Michael Bendis.

Before I go further, here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.
Marvel announced that the new creative team on Daredevil is none other than Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto. The title with the ominous sounding promotion ‘Know Fear’ starts in February 2019. For more details, visit marvel.com
TO Comix Press announced a new Kickstarter called Shout Out Anthology. Described as a bold new anthology of queer comics for teen readers, the award-winning team behind the title includes Eisner-award winning Andrew Wheeler, GLAAD and Kerrang! Award winner Kieron Gillen, plus Derrick Chow, Dante Luiz and H. Pueyo. The Kickstarter deadline is December 15. And just a bit of info from the Kickstarter organizers, Brian Michael Bendis himself has backed the book. For more details, visit www.kickstarter.com/projects/tocomixpress/shout-out-anthology
