"The problem with the Empire is that by definition and design it's faceless. There's the Stormtrooper uniform and that kind of fascistic grip of it all, and that means there's a lot of dudes that aren’t necessarily interesting to read about. [Laughs] One of those dudes is quite cool, but not as everyone in your cast. One of the joys of this book though is that we can bring in sketchier characters. You get those bounty hunter guys, and you get people who are just as ethically questionable and evil, but can act in a different way." - Kieron Gillen

He's not like those in the other parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

He doesn't have followers- he's a loner.

He doesn't have ambitions- he's uncomplicated.

He's evil, but not grandiosely so. He just has murderous urges that he likes to indulge.

He's Yoshikage Kira- well, he was Yoshikage Kira, until he was found. To escape justice, he stole the life and face of another man, stepping into his shoes.

His ill-fitting shoes. )

"Fresh Romance is a monthly digital romance comics magazine from Rosy Press ( — the whole thing is the brainchild of brilliant editor Janelle Asselin, and since romance and comics are two of the things I love most in life, I was thrilled when she asked me to be part of it! Every issue has three ongoing stories and a bunch of other goodies, like advice columns and fashion reports. It’s similar to old school romance comics in that love stuff — blushing and kissing and feelings — is positioned front and center. I think it differs in that the stories span a wide range of sub-genres (historical, high school, supernatural) and star a diverse range of protagonists. As an Asian American lady, I don’t see myself a lot as a protagonist in the romances I enjoy, so featuring a diverse crew of characters was very important to me.

My story, “The Ruby Equation”, is a supernatural romantic comedy about Ruby, a grouchy barista matchmaker from another dimension. Her mission is to help humans find love…but she’s really, really bad at it."

"This is my love song to the Marvel Universe though, and my love song is about the joy of the unfamiliar as well as the familiar. So the idea is that you know the archetypes, but these are new things that you've never seen before. That was my thinking. If I'm going to say why I love Marvel, it's not just the characters. It's also the process of saying, here's something new with them you never expected. It's not just this nostalgia thing. It's the House of Ideas. Let's own that." -- Kieron Gillen

POP-BREAK: There’s a lot of subterfuge in that first issue–even for the reader–and the characters are sort of play-acting in the world. Is the other part of it about hiding their relationships and navigating that?

KATE LETH: Yeah, it’s a fun and upbeat comic, but there the note that I want to hit–outside of it being kind of joke-y and fun and silly and sexy–is the reasons that people do hide their relationships. So, there’s a little bit of serious stuff behind that. But yeah, that’s definitely part of it.

POP-BREAK: How important was it to you to have a diverse cast?

KATE LETH: Oh, super important. Right from the start, when [artist] Arielle [Jovellanos] and I talked about the series, that was one of the first things we talked about. I wanted to have a queer romance in the story–and Arielle is an artist of color–so we really wanted it to have a diverse cast of characters.
