It’s great to discover a high-power storyteller when you go to a comic convention, and one of the most recent “finds” for me has been Chris Charlton, scripter of many wonderful tales including Black of Heart, Binary Gray, The Dolls, and Open Tree, just to name a few! I enjoy variety, and his writing sparkles and surprises every time I read it. I met him in person at this year’s Cincinnati Comic Expo, and I picked up the hardcover version of Black of Heart, a book I very highly recommend! We discuss that book and his other works, all of which I enjoyed tremendously! To access his stories, go to his website at this link. Don’t miss this entertaining chat with an excellent comics creator I hope we hear much more from in the days ahead!
