Interview with Kirsten Thompson, Writer and Creator of I Am Hexed

COMIC BOOK YETI: Hi there! Thanks for agreeing to do this interview. I really appreciate it. Can you introduce yourself and what you do to contribute to this series?

KIRSTEN THOMPSON: Hi, my name is Kirsten Thompson and I’m the writer and creator of I Am Hexed.

CBY: Congratulations on having a successful Kickstarter for issue 4! When does the Kickstarter end, in case anybody reading wanted to pledge?

KT: The Kickstarter ends on March 18th.

CBY: What was the inspiration to write I Am Hexed?

KT: The inspiration for I Am Hexed came from a number of places: wanting to have more queer stories, as well my love of witchcraft, magic, and mysteries, as well as some of the events that have happened in the world over the last few years. In addition, this is a story which celebrates people asking what are perhaps uncomfortable questions to get to the truth.

CBY: Did you know that you wanted to work with Christianne for the illustrations and Taylor for the lettering right away, or were they suggested for you? Everything seems to flow so well with your writing that you all seem like a magic trio (if you’ll forgive the bad joke).

KT: I really like Christianne’s work and so she was someone I wanted to work with on this project as it really felt like something that would suit her style.
