Artist Katie Longua has long been a favorite here at ComicsAlliance, creating distinctive, vibrant comics that sing with energy and jump straight off the page. After the success of her madcap risograph comic Munchies, it became clear that she's an artist with a kaleidoscope in her mind and a hugely exciting future in comics. Her newest project, Her Space Opera, is another ambitious, visually stunning piece of work.
In collaboration with chiptune musician Accumulator, every page of the comic is accompanied by a different song from his newest album. Designed with his songs in mind, the comic creates a journey through space and creates a singular approach to narrative. Longua came onto the project with the album already in the works, and set about bending the music into visual life. ComicsAlliance spoke to Longua and Accumulator about how their collaboration came about.
