Comichaus Meets: Sarah Millman

Today we meet creator, writer & artist, Sarah Millman.


Please introduce yourself and your team (if you have one).

I'm Sarah Millman (aka Milmo) a writer/artist person from Wales. I've been making comics since 2012, and my current project is NPC Tea - a short series about a tea shop in Cardiff run by orcs, elves and other magical creatures. 

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

Too many to mention! I love Shaun Tan (especially The Arrival) and James Jean, both of which really inspired me as I was doing my illustration degree. I grew up reading Neil Gaiman and Akira Toriyama, and at the moment it's all about Jen Wang. 

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

It's a mixture really - I like to base my characters around elements of people I know. In the end I can sometimes see similarities with myself but it's not intentional!  

Where did you draw your inspiration from?

As a self-published creator sometimes you forget how much work you're actually doing. I've had a few stumbling blocks and it takes a lot of effort to stop and look after yourself. I find it very difficult to ask for help too - recently I've started collaborating with other creators and it's a breath of fresh air. 

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

That's a hard one - uh, everywhere? I tend to write when something annoys me, it's good therapy!

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

I like to think you can go in blind! If you like fantasy as a genre there's a lot of nods to other franchises you'll enjoy. Especially Final Fantasy 9...

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

NPC Tea is finishing up this year (three issues to go!) and I just launched the Kickstarter for issue 6 last week. After that, I'm working on more self-published projects (or maybe more NPC Tea if people want it!)
