What are some of the comics that inspired you to start creating your own? Any creators in particular?

The usual rabble of Watchmen, Sin City and anything by Jonathan Hickman. Hickman seems to spin gold from straw, building complex worlds and mining the minutest pieces of lore from Marvel to create extraordinary sagas. His independent work is pretty top-notch also!

How much of your own personality goes into your character(s)?

They say write what you know.  Each character has a voice of someone I know (and yes I’ve been caught out once or twice!) and I’m sure I leave a little piece of me in there as well.

Where did you draw your inspiration from?

My driving force and inspiration is my partner who constantly encourages me to explore my creativity and helps to knock me out of being a self-indulgent megalomanic!

What struggles have you faced with the creation of, and producing, the final release?

Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines!  Don’t announce an independent book until you are done! Even if you have a strong team and work ethic life will still get in the way.  Prepare for anything. Keep your promises.

What do fans need to know going into their first issue of your comic?

Aroha Comics Presents Worldbreaker sets up the World of Aroha Comics and gives a bit of background to what changes afflicted the planet before the telling of SCHISM and the rest of our upcoming series.

What have you got coming up in the future? Are you working on more issues?

Aroha Comics Presents Worldbreaker and SCHISM Act One are now live on Comichaus.
Scism Act 2 is due late 2020 with a special cover by Punisher and Starlight artist Goran Parlov.
THIS LAND has issue 1 published with artwork completed up to issue 4.
Look for the release of all 5 issues in late 2020
