Here’s my chat with Joy San about her new graphic novel Sugar & Other Stories. This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts. And the podcast is also available on YouTube. Please like and subscribe to that video channel.

Joy is a Toronto-based freelance Illustrator. When she’s not illustrating or drawing comics, Joy enjoys hiking, vlogging, and hunting for bakeries. According to Joy she loves to illustrate the creepy, disturbing, and horrific, but through a comedic lens. Joy has illustrated Bingo Love along with many mini comics and prints. Her current work is Sugar & Other Stories published by Silver Sprocket.

Sugar & Other Stories is a “collection of short horror comics that masterfully explores the way in which we contort and control ourselves, balancing the bloody and brutal with unexpected levity. Stories include: A devoted yet amoral creature ensures a girl’s blood sugar stays up, plus A gory ritual creature creates a charming women’s perfect smile, and A neglected and overworked wife is slowly consumed by her violent fantasies.”
