Eva joins Ibrahim Moustafa to talk about comics, writing, art, world-building, and the creative process. They covered a lot of ground in this one, with topics ranging from creative control to diversity, and vegetarianism.
Ibrahim Moustafa is an illustrator and comic book writer/artist from Portland, Oregon. Best known for his Eisner-nominated comics Jaeger and High Crimes as well as his work on titles such as James Bond and DC’s Mother Panic, he has been published by DC Entertainment, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse Comics, BOOM! Studios, Valiant Entertainment, and IDW Publishing, among others.
COUNT follows the adventures of one Redxan Samud.
Framed for treason and wrongfully imprisoned at the hands of a jealous and corrupt magistrate, Samud escapes his breathtaking hover-prison with only one thing on his mind: revenge.
Samud sets out to dismantle the lives of those who have wronged him, disguised as a Man of Status with a newfound fortune at his disposal and his Automaton Retainer Unit (Aru) by his side. But as collateral damage accumulates, Samud is caught between using his new fortune for the good of the people or pursuing the revenge he so desperately desires.
“Humanoids has always been at the forefront of publishing beautifully produced, imaginative graphic novels,” said Ibrahim Moustafa.
“I’m incredibly honored to have COUNT added to that pantheon and grateful for a long-term commitment to publish more of the kinds of stories I’d like to tell.”
COUNT features colors by Brad Simpson (Crone, Stray Dogs), letters by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (PanelxPanel, Undone by Blood), and was edited by Rob Levin.
