Jazma Online recently did an interview with War’s Chosen creator Arthur Bellfield about the book, its history, etc… You can read the entire interview by CLICKING HERE, but see below for a sampling from it.
“Rich: How did you come up with the idea for “War’s Chosen”?
Arthur: I was in high school and I wanted to create my own X-Men team to be honest with you. Over the years the characters stuck with me and I decided to go for it!
Rich: What do you think of J.C. Grande’s art?
Arthur: J.C.’s art is fantastic! He’s a great storyteller and knows how to bring characters and scenes alive. His style is a bit sketchy at times to create a certain emotion and that at other times his line work comes alive and makes you say “Damn!” He was perfect for this type of action story!
Rich: What do you think is the main selling point of “War’s Chosen”?
Arthur: The main selling point for War’s Chosen is that this is your chance to read a comic that isn’t watered down or made to be a movie or a toyline..it was made with the readers in mind who want something from a comic that is a mixture of everything that loved about comics growing up! The storyline is fantastic, the characters have their own voices, plus the ending will give you chills! If anything buy this book for the ending, and for the discussion that this book will open up! Plus, Ceara Tags is in it, and she’ll be a breakout character along with Pulserat!“
