Denver Comic Con 2017 Interview with Nate Hamel
Denver Comic Con is always a great place for artists to show off their creations. This year though, something that caught my eye was Barbarians, an indie comic book created by my friend, Nathanial (Nate) Hamel. Barbarians is the story of two female badass barbarians, who go around killing things. However, the special thing about this comic is Nate’s message to try to desensitize what the public perceives as nudity. Through that, he’s created two powerful female anti heroes. Take a look at at the interview below.
