Creannotators #83: “Ax-Wielder Jon” with creator Nick Pitarra!

May 24, 2022

This week on Creannotators, I’m talking Ax-Wielder Jon with writer and artist Nick Pitarra! We talk how fatherhood shaped the crowd-funded graphic novel, leveling up your art, the future of The Manhattan Projects with Jonathan Hickman, and much more!

On Comic Book Herald’s ‘Creannotators’ I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. Creannotators is an audio annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
