On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.

This episode’s guest is comic book artist Liana Kangas. Currently, you can catch her run on the Black Mask Studio comic Black AF: Devil’s Dye, written by Vita Ayala. This week,
it was announced via Newsarama that Kangas will join writer Joe Corallo on the next project She Said Destroy, set to debut in May through Vault Comics.

During our interview, we talked about Black AF: Devil’s Dye and her role in making the comic, as an artist finding your own style, how she became an artist, strong women leads in comic books, being a woman in the comic book industry, mentoring young creators, her favorite music artists, and her upcoming comic She Said Destroy.

Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. Kangas chose illustrator Jackie Von Spanks (JLH Illustration) or comic book writer Lan Pitts (writer for WWE series on Boom Studios).
