Everyone's got baggage, but Ushala probably has a little more than most. She's the reincarnation of the woman who nearly exterminated her entire tribe many years ago. As a result, she's been exiled from her community (by her own mother!) and now has more physical baggage in the form of a carrion wraith who follows her around, hoping to devour her.
The fantasy genre also has a lot of baggage, and through Ushala at World's End, Robin Kaplan and Nathan Robison hope to upend and overcome that baggage — with matriarchal societies, a ban on sexual violence, and a more considered eye towards marginalized representation in the narrative. Webcomic Q&A caught up with them to find out more.
The official art book of Emerald City Comicon, Monsters & Dames is an annual release that invites a wide spectrum of talent to indulge their artistic idiosyncrasies in the name of charity, with proceeds from sales of the hardcover release and original art auctions having raised over $55,000 for Seattle Children's hospital. Between now and Emerald City's start date of March 27, ComicsAlliance will showcase some of the gorgeous work to be found in the 2014 edition of Monsters & Dames, including exclusive images you'll see here before any where else.
Today's preview includes never-before-seen art by Ryan Ottley, Lindsay Ishihiro and Scott Kurtz, as well as new art by Robin Kaplan, Amy Mebberson, Scott Blair, Brett Bean and Edwin Huang.
