2012 has been an extraordinary year for comics, and 2013 is shaping up to be even hotter. I've had my eye on a few projects behind the scenes, and this is one of my picks for freshest début of the year. Liberator, a new kind of hero, a hardcore Animal Man rooted in realism rather than superpowers, digging deep into the political power of comics and unleashing a new front for animal activism and sequential creativity.
Launched on Kickstarter today, the 4 issue mini has already recieved praise from Scott Snyder, Steve Niles, and Jimmy Palmiotti amongst others. All the info is at the Kickstarter page, so go and check it out! In the meantime, hit the jump for an exclusive interview with writer Matt Miner and backup artist Yasmin Liang - and take a note of that last name in particular, because she is a real rising star.
