J. Alice Bown’s Damsels Don’t Wear Glasses is a compelling read, with visuals that compliment and amplify a fun, kinetic story. Jason called across the pond to have a chat with Alice, learning about her process and experiences creating a webcomics for over a decade and how it’s shaped her abilities from writing to encompassing everything needed to tell a good and convincing comic story.
It’s time to save the world from … something, and we’ve got our psychic blades ready to … do something, I guess? We don’t feel incredibly motivated to fight evil after reading J. Alice Bown’s Damsels Don’t Wear Glasses, but we certainly dig the vibe that Lave and company are putting out into the world. The comic has a visual style all its own that shows a clear delineation between the “real” world and the magical one. Get off the couch and don’t sleep through this one!
