Welcome to Episode 11 of ComicPop Visits. In this episode we the ComicPop Crew visit with Ken Johnson, the creator, writer, and artist of the U.K based comic book Velica. I want to thank Stacey Aragon, the Community Relation Assistant, of Velica Comics, for contacting us here at ComicPop Library about Ken and his creation. She was kind enough to send us some digital previews of Velica and connecting us with Ken.
Also a big thank you to Ken for his patience with technology as we had our visit with him.

Thanks to Stacey Aragon for getting in touch with us about this great looking UK comic. The comic is Ken Johnson’s Velica and follows this young women who is seeking revenge for her father’s death. Just by looking at some of the images online it is similar to a Punisher/Jennifer Blood titles. For me this is in my wheel house that I love. I want to get my hands on the six issues that have been printed in the UK, that would be great. But if nothing else on the Team Velica website they have informed everyone that a deal has been signed with Strick 9 Label and Toledo Publishing Group of Chicago, Illinois, to reprint the first six issues for the U.S. market.
