Happy Holidays everyone! Today’s episode features the award-winning writer N.K. Jemisin and the incredible artist Jamal Campbell who I spoke to recently about their new comic book Far Sector on the DC Young Animal Imprint. The comic introduces us to a brand new member of the Green Lantern Corp. Sojourner “Jo” Mullein. The first black woman to weild a Power Ring.

Jemisin is well known in the fantasy fiction space because she is the first person to ever win 3 consecutive Hugo Awards for her Broken Earth Series: The Fifth Season (2016), The Obelisk Gate (2017) and The Stone Sky (2018) the final installment of the series. Meanwhile, Jamal Campbell has been quietly working in comics for years. He’s drawn everything from Spider-Man for Marvel to Green Arrow and Naomi for DC. But I first heard of him when he was pushing his indie comic. The Immortal Nadia Greene.
Jemisin’s world-building is spectacular and if you ever wanted a breakdown of each of the ethinic groups in the City Enduring, you must listen to Campbell’s descriptions of the Nah, the @AT, and the keh-Topli. Check out the show notes below on how to get your hands on the comic. And don’t forget to subscribe!
Merry Christmas folks!
