Episode 54- Junko Mizuno

Junko Mizuno has created the logo for the 2019 Comic Art Festival and we proudly chatted to her for this episode. Junko was originally born in Tokyo and her self taught style is based mainly on 70’s and 80’s Japanese pop culture. We discuss her upbringing and life in Japan and how she got her break into the world of comics.

We review Junko’s book Ravina the Witch as well as Rachael Smiths Stand in Your Power and Sarah Lightman’s The Book of Sarah. Mike continues his look into Dungeons and Dragons in comics and Tom reviews Russell Mark Olsen’s The Black Iris. Pete interviews Adam Smith for the 2nd time from Mixam.com about printing in the USA and the services they now offer to creators.
