Interview: Brandon Thomas, author of The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury: Time Runs Out

Aug 30, 2011

Brandon Thomas created his heroine Miranda Mercury to make the kind of comic book he’d like to see in the marketplace. While publishers initially shied away from the concept for a number of reasons, The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury eventually found a home with Archaia Entertainment and has been garnering attention and praise in the graphic novel world. It appears on this year's YALSA list of selections of Great Graphic Novels for Teens and has been nominated for four Glyph Awards. Thomas spoke to GraphicNovelReporter about how he created Miranda, his decades-long love of comics, and how he’s been both writing about comics and for comics the last several years.
