Jarrett Williams Talks 'Hyper Force Neo' [Interview]
Jarrett Williams has an enthusiasm for comics that comes through in everything he does, whether it's tabling at conventions or crafting high-energy action stories on the comics page. It's that enthusiasm that's made me a fan of his, and when I found out that he was doing a new series about a Super Sentai-esque team of teenagers in giant robots fighting aliens in the future, "excited" doesn't really cover it. That book is Hyper Force Neo, and in April, the oversized 48-page first issue is hitting stands from Z2 Comics to start a brand-new ongoing series. To find out more, I spoke to Williams about his influences for the title, how a trip to Hong Kong helped to shape the future that he presents, and why Hyper Force Neo actually has a little bit in common with Richie Rich. He also offered us a look at the story's roots in his teenage sketchbook!
