The Reason for DragonsWelcome back to The PREVIEWS Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

In this month’s PREVIEWS magazine, Archaia showed off a new graphic novel called The Reason for Dragons. This original story, written by Chris Northrop and illustrated by Jeff Stokely, promises to capture the imagination of readers much like the films The Neverending Story, E.T., and The Goonies did. I sat down with Chris Northrop to talk about what inspired this cool new tale about knights and dragons in our modern world.

Khaos Komix*Please note that the subject matter discussed in the interview contains adult content and is for mature readers only.


One of my favorite webcomics, Khaos Komix, recently came to a planned end, and I felt it was the best time to find out just what goes on in the mind of its creator, Tab Kimpton.  Much of the webcomic has a personal significance for Kimpton, given the information I’ve gleamed in conversation and looking on the comic’s website, as the subject matter has touched both myself and my fellow FBCer, Kristine Chester, deeply; however, because of said subject matter and the artistic style used, a lot of the webcomic is considered mature content and not geared toward children, so be careful when reading it.  Now, thanks to some friendly emails between the two of us, I was able to have an interview with Kimpton about Khaos Komix and other ideas.
