LaM_V_Main_Graphic

JoelGomezJimmy Calabrese of Coffin Comics sat down with La Muerta series artist Joel Gomez for a quick interview about the upcoming La Muerta #1: Vengeance premiering on Kickstarter June 14!

JIMMY CALABRESE: What can you tell us about the style and mood of the art in this new La Muerta story?

JOEL GOMEZ: In this second chapter I pursued more of what Brian Pulido and Mike MacLean enjoyed about my art from the first chapter. I took those aspects and doubled down, I think fans area really going to enjoy it.

JC: Sounds like you guys are firing on all cylinders for this new chapter.JG: Now that we’ve been working together longer we understand each other better and I can more confidently convey in the art what the story needs.

Action_PageJG: Now that we’ve been working together longer we understand each other better and I can more confidently convey in the art what the story needs.

JC:  Do you have any favorite characters to draw in La Muerta?

ActionPage_02JG: What’s cool about drawing Maria / La Muerta is that she doesn’t always have to wear the same uniform. It’s not like she wears a Superman costume that you identify her with it. Instead she has a theme, everything she wears is black, punk rock-ish, but it can change. Which is cool because I get to make fashionable choices on her clothing and accessories and make her as bad ass as I can. It gives me freedom to come up different ways to make her look really cool, as if she was a star in a music video. I also like drawing the goons! The B and C list bad guys are fun cause they can be as ugly or as weird as I want them to be!

JC: HA, that’s awesome. I hear this new story has some new characters what can you share about them?

LaM_Ch_03_Hardcover-copyJG: Yea, it’s pretty neat. I really enjoy this world Brian created. The new characters involved are really upping the ante of the craziness of this world. There’s a new character named El Brujo and he’s like a shaman that’s a nod to Mexican folklore. I like what Brian and Mike are tapping into. They also have some colorful villains that make for really good character variety. A lot of what Brian and Mike pull from comes from actual folklore which adds an extra level of interest to the characters and makes them fun to draw.

JC: Wow, sounds like the fans will be really excited about this new chapter of La Muerta.

JG: We’re really pulling out all the stops, as cliché as that sounds. I think the familiarity of working with this crew and knowing what Brian and Mike are really looking for helps us step up our game. We have less back and forth about what we are seeing and more about agreeing on what needs to be shown. It also boosts my confidence knowing what will be coming back with colorist Ceci de la Cruz, so I know what I need to draw to make her colors work best. We are playing to our strengths in this way because we are familiar with each other. It makes for a better book and a more enjoyable read for the fans. People are going to love it.
