I’m really excited about this interview because it’s the first EXCLUSIVE here at theblerdgurl! On this podcast episode, I’m talking to the creator of Stranger Comics, Sebastian A. Jones. I’ve been a fan of Stranger Comic’s series Niobe, (created with actress and activist Amandla Stenberg), for quite some time. Last year, I spoke to him about more of the world of Asunda, the epic universe that all of the Stranger Comics titles share. during that interview, he mentioned that he had something big in the works, but I had no idea how big until Deadline reported that Jones had just signed a deal with HBO for a series adapting the world of Asunda. This means ALL of the Stranger Comics titles are quite possibly headed to series.
In addition, Jones retains all his publishing rights to characters and tales, and HBO picks up the TV and Film rights to the characters onscreen. In this, his first interview since the announcement, Jones talks about the deal publicly and gives us a real-world view of the humble journey it took to build his company from scratch.
