Bow to the Queenie
Aussie manga artist, the classy Queenie Chan has just collaborated with suspense and horror writer Dean Koontz to release a new graphic novel In Odd We Trust, based on Koontz's Odd Thomas character – a short-order cook who can see the dead and solve murders. To find out more about the story and art, as well as the creative process check out this Publishers' Weekly interview with Queenie. We just scoured our iPhoto files and found this pic of Queenie who attended the Black Mermaid Brunch we hosted in August last year. The purpose of the brunch was to introduce Australian comics creators and publishers to mainstream book publishers and agents. From left to right in the photo: Karen and Ben Howard from Phosphorescent Comics, Queenie Chan, and artist/comics publishing consultant W Chew Chan (no relation to the Q). You can catch Queenie at the 2008 San Diego ComicCon.
