Sierra Barnes is a cartoonist whose work combines such varied influences as history, folk lore, mythology, fascism, anti-fascism, war, and foxes that might not actually be foxes. Her webcomic exploration of these topics, Hans Vogel is Dead, was just announced as having its first volume of strips collected with updated content by the folks over at Dark Horse Comics. She uses her degrees in History and German Studies, as well as an MFA in Comics from California College of the Arts, to bring to every page Hans Vogel’s death to life.

Greg sits down with Sierra to talk about the long road in getting Hans Vogel out of her head and on to the screen and page, the differences between mythology, folklore, and history, how she learned to stop worrying and love the art of lettering comics, what tales scarred her for life, her take on the age-old question “Walt Disney: Threat or Menace?”, and much more!

When he’s not re-enacting 17th century English civil warfare, he’s spreading the gospel of 2000AD, the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, as the now-Brand Manager of Rebellion/2000AD. But it’s his role as author of the new book I AM THE LAW: How […]
