Hi, we’re John Lees and Adam Cahoon, writer and artist of The Nasty, a horror comedy releasing on April 5th from Vault Comics, and we’re here to talk about comics, telling stories, the joy of horror, and video nasties. AMA!
My name is John Lees, and I’m a comic book writer from Glasgow, Scotland. I’m best known for my work on folk horror And Then Emily Was Gone with artist Iain Laurie, horror anthology Hotell with artist Dalibor Talajić, and hard-boiled Glasgow crime saga Sink with artist Alex Cormack. My other credits include The Standard, Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare, Quilte, Mountainhead and a story for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Universe, and my most recent project was The Crimson Cage, a pro wrestling retelling of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. You can learn more about me and my work in my weekly newsletter, which you can subscribe to at www.deep-ender.johnleescomics.com, and you can grab my comics at my online shop, www.johnleescomics.bigcartel.com.
My name is Adam Cahoon, and I’m a comic book artist and designer from the Bay Area, California. I’m best known for my self-published comics The Tuffs, Origin House: Spa and Retreat, and Anomaly, as well as my design work with Second Rocket Comics. My other credits include the fan comic Silver Surfer Grey, and the forth-coming I Was A Teenage Ghost Rider. I have design work as well as short comics in the forthcoming books Everything Is Different Now from Justin Richards, Morsels by J Donahue, and Dead Blood by DB Andry.
