Inside Good Comics For Kids

Interview: Zack Giallongo

Eva Volin

On Wednesday, July 11 through Sunday, July 15, while attending the Comic-Con International 2012 in San Diego, I ran around to as many of my favorite kids comics creators as I could and asked them all the exact same questions. Keep in mind, comic book conventions are crazy loud and crazy busy, so there is a lot of background noise. Let me know in the comments if you have trouble hearing anything and I’ll translate for you.

For many kids, the whole reason they read comics is for the fantasy and the adventure. Action, swords, beasts with fangs, ghosts, witches. Any and/or all of these things are vital ingredients for a proper comic and Broxo has them and more. I was a bit disappointed to see that Zack’s website is still a work in progress because it’s hard for me to believe that Broxo is his first graphic novel. There must be more out there, right? It’s not fair for anyone to hit something so far out of the park on his first try.
