Ariela Kristantina Talks Marguerite Bennett And Batman At C2E2

Makarim Salman is at C2E2 for Bleeding Cool,

Ariela Kristantina is at Table L8 at C2E2. She's best known for Wolverines and the Logan Legacy.

"Currently I'm working full-time on InSeXts from Aftershock. I'm doing covers and interiors."

"Marguerite Bennett is a fantastic writer. It's a great brainstorming process with her and our editor."

"I've worked with Mike Marts before when I worked on The Logan Legacy at Marvel. He's very clear on what he wants and understands my process as an artist."

"This is my first C2E2. I'll try to be back next year or the year after. The space is great. The planning around managing lines has been great. The panels are also awesome, although I'm busy drawing so I can't go!"

Ariela splits her time between Jakarta and the US – she is here for 4 months to do C2E2, Motor City Con and Heroes Con.

Here's Ariela with a commission,  an awesome DC Trinity piece, showing the Death of Batman from Final Crisis, after "The First Mourning" by William-Adolphe Bougureau.
