In this exclusive interview with the writer, we discussed the origins of the project, the historical elements, and why crime comics have experienced a new life in recent years.
Courtesy of Image Comics, writer Pornsak Pichetshote and colorist/editor José Villarrubia took some time out of their busy schedules at New York Comic Con 2019 to meet with ua and reflect on the incredible series their team (including artist Aaron Campbell and letterer/designer Jeff Powell) created.
Most horror comics fall into three broad categories: Tales from the Crypt style shockers, creature features, and gore fests. Very few are able to incorporate horror elements and topical subtext to transcend the genre, but Image Comics Infidel by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell certainly does.
Image’s new horror series Infidel is one that will appeal to fans of atmospheric horror stories as well as those who enjoy smart, socially conscious writing about the real fears that are created through prejudice and ignorance.
