In April, I had a chance to review some comics that Alterna was planning to release in May. One of those comics, Lilith Dark, really stood out to me. This is the perfect introductory comic for children. Lilith is a fearless heroine fighting the big bad beasties after all.
Recently, I had the chance to ask the creator of that series, Charles C. Dowd, a few questions. Find out what goes into his craft and what other work is coming out soon.
The inspiration for the story came when I took my daughter, who was seven at the time, to our local comic shop. I quickly realized that there was very little for a seven-year-old on the shelves, and definitely nothing meant for a girl. After we got home, I decided that instead of complaining about it on Twitter, I’d go ahead and just make my own comic. I wanted it to be a fun story for kids, and I wanted the main character to be a girl, but I also didn’t want it to be pink and frilly, so from that Lilith Dark was born.
