Early Life and Education

Graphic novel writer Shobo Coker and masterful artist George Kambadais captured my imagination with their five-issue series Buckhead, an African immigrant story about loss and identity that begins when she moves to a sleepy Pacific Northwest town. These issues can be difficult to address, but these two have enough imagination, cultural understanding, and human compassion that it all comes together – creating an otherworldly thriller that feels like there’s another dimension where you can disappear into.
George Kambadais is best known for his work on Dungeons and Dragons and John Carter of Mars, but he’s also responsible for some of the more daring comic book titles of recent years. Currently, he’s working on Dynamite’s Gargoyles series which blends humor with stunning design elements. Not only that but Kambadais has an appreciation of all art forms – which explains how he managed to bring cartooning alive in comic book form!
