High Fructose Zombies: Interview with David Phillips & Sarah Braly

Hey Fangirls!  A couple weeks back I was lucky enough to go to Special Edition: NYC and meet some absolutely lovely independent creators.  I think independent creators are some of the most amazing and inspiring people on the planet.  They make what they love, and to me, that’s beautiful.  Two of the individuals I met at SE:NYC were David Phillips and Sarah Braly.  Let me tell you, Fangirls, these folks really know how to catch an eye.  In a sea of grey and blue tables, their’s was neon green.  It was littered in lovely yet despicable cupcakes, and had some really intriguing comics on top.  So when my friends were looking for back issues that I wasn’t concerned with, I sneaked off to the High Fructose Zombies table.

Interview with Anna Capunay & Yunuen Pardo of Cowl Girl

Hey Fangirls! Recently, I found out about an IndieGoGo for a rad tv show called Cowl Girl.  Its kind of based on the life of a Fangirl, from Latin America.  Cowl Girl was written by Anna Capunay and is played by Yunuen Pardo.  Cowl Girl has a problem with leaving the house, but she desperately wants to go to San Diego Comic Con (don’t we all?) to get her Pee Wee Herman action figure signed.  I was lucky enough to interview not only the writer, but the lovely woman who plays Cowl Girl.
