INTERVIEW: Rodney Barnes talks on Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog
The creative team that brought us Killadelphia is back at it with another smash hit that takes place in the Killadelphia universe. The new title is called Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog.
In their press release Image Comics described Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog by saying, “Jimmy Sangster may have left Maryland for the vampire-infested city of “Killadelphia”, but there is still untold evil lurking the streets in Baltimore.”
As a huge fan of Killadelphia I was eager to learn more about the upcoming series that would expand this universe. I reached out to the author, Rodney Barnes, to ask him a few questions.
Quentin Rushing: From what I’ve gathered, this title takes place in the same universe as Killadelphia, with the focus being on Jimmy Sangster’s time in Baltimore. How much can we expect to see the other characters we’ve gotten to know and love?
Rodney Barnes: Over time you’ll see them. For now the focus and attention is on Nita and her world.
Quentin Rushing: Will this be a small run covering a story arc or two, or can we be expecting an ongoing series?
Rodney Barnes: This is an ongoing series.
Quentin Rushing: You and Mr. Alexander are easily on my short list for being one of the best writer/artist tandems I’ve read this year. What do you attribute the connection you have to?
Rodney Barnes: Our friendship. We talk a lot and that communication guides my words and I believe his art. We play to each other’s strengths
Quentin Rushing: Thank you for your time. I wish Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog all the success you guys deserve. I can’t wait to see it on the shelves!
Rodney Barnes: Thank you very much!
Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog will be out in time for Halloween. It’s slated to hit shelves on October 20, 2021.
