Indie comics creator John Robinson IV stops by to talk about his current series SCORPIO, about being a comics writer and creator, the elements that go into putting together and publishing an indie comic, and more.
John talks about the research he did into the lore and science of the zodiac, and the how traits and tendencies for each sign led to creating relics that imbued powers to the “primary” of each sign. He also talks about the artwork, inking and penciling for the books, and hints at what the future holds for the continuation and expansion of the entire series.
And yes, Saint Seiya fans may get into this story.
