ReedPOP’s Emerald City Comic Con once again takes over the immense WA State Convention Center in Seattle, attracting tens of thousands of comic book and pop culture fans from across the globe, by showcasing some of the best creative talents there is to offer – our man on the ground, Dan Berry, has been very lucky to be invited along as Press, meaning hes got the chance to speak one-on-one with members of this outstanding creative melting pot.
One such talent is the excellent New-York-based artist Khary Randolph, someone who continues to make quite the impression on many books of varying scale and tone, from the likes of SPIDER-MAN, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and TEEN TITANS for the majors, to comics for the independents such as TECHJACKET (Skybound), NOBLE (Lion Forge) and CHARISMAGIC: THE DEATH PRINCESS (Aspen).
Randolph provided the covers for the acclaimed BLACK series, published by Black Mask Studios – he returns to the team of writers Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith 3, and interior artist Jamal Igle for the next chapter in the high concept series WHITE. It’s a powerful piece, full of social and racial commentary, and here Dan talks to Khary about the process of putting WHITE together, as well as upcoming projects.
Thanks to Khary for taking time out of his busy con, and to Dan for bringing the interview to us…
