Denver Comic Con '15: Talking With Gene Ha About Mae With 2 More Days On Kickstarter

Ashleigh Jay is an all-ages writer for Bleeding Cool. She has been reporting from Denver Comic Con and is 12 years old. Given the huge amount of programming for young people at Denver Comic Con, one of their missions, we were very happy to have Ashleigh on board to check out some of these events. This time, she interviewed Gene Ha. She writes:

imageGene Ha was very generous with his time in discussing his new novel and sketching during our conversation. He was very nice about me interviewing him and took time out of his schedule for me.

Gene Ha has been working on a new graphic novel called Mae. This novel is about two sisters named Mae and Abbie from a small town in Indiana. At the age of thirteen, Abbie disappears. Eight years later, she comes back telling wild stories about her adventures in another land. Mae thinks she is crazy – until the monsters from Abbie's stories follow her back….

Ha was heavily inspired by The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and multiple other books about traveling to other worlds. He said that he was especially influenced by Why I Hate Saturn by Kyle Baker. Mae is written for young adult readers. I seems like something I would love to read. I definitely recommend taking a look at it. The Kckstarter ends this Wednesday, May 27 around noon so check it out!
