Derek Royal from the The Comics Alternative podcast conducts an insightful and lengthy interview with yours truly and artist Brent Bowman about Persia Blues vol. 2.
I’ll let Derek tell you a bit about what to expect:
“Dara and Brent discuss the challenges in balancing the two narrative threads and the process they use when creating the comic. The two originally met through the comics collective, PANEL, based out of Columbus, OH — in fact, much of the story in the second volume of Persia Blues takes place at OSU — and, as they discuss with Derek, their close proximity contributes to the book’s development. Along the way, Brent and Dara share their thoughts on writing from woman’s perspective, contemporary representations of Middle-Eastern figures, and the kind of reception Persia Blues has received within the Iranian American community.”
