I recently spoke with artist Tamiko Masters, and her husband, writer Riley Masters at the 2018 Panel One Comic Creator Festival. They took time from the show to speak with me about their first published story in the Swan Song anthology, published by Cloudscape Comics from Vancouver, B.C. To say they’re excited about their debut work would be an understatement. Hit play on the Soundcloud link below, and have a listen to Tamiko and Riley Masters talk about what they learned along the journey of cranking out that first story.
