Josh Ruben and Bri Tippets Descend into Darla
Josh Ruben and Bri Tippets are the incredibly talented writer/artist duo behind the hugely popular new horror graphic novel Darla from Invader Comics!!!
Darla takes readers on a dark and immersive journey that delves deep into the realms of horror and psychological intrigue. Drawing inspiration from classics like “Dead Zone” and “Requiem for a Dream,” Ruben & Tippetts cleverly unravels a tale that explores the unsettling side of Americana, touching on themes of politics, health, psychosis, and murder.
With stunning illustrations and a gripping narrative, Darla brings to life a haunting vision of a distorted reality. Ruben’s unique storytelling approach is sure to captivate readers, immersing them in a world that blurs the lines between dreams and nightmares which is complemented by Tippetts’s artistic flair and love of horror which resonates in her illustrations.
I got the chance to sit down and talk with them about how they first got into writing and art respectively, the inspiration behind life experiences and how it’s important to get out there and surround yourself with like-minded people, the importance of taking chances on yourself and to not be afraid, the good, the bad, and the ugly of social media, the current writer/actor strike, and tons more! We also chat about any advice they have for up-and-coming creatives!
After an extremely successful Kickstarter, you can now get your very own copy straight from the publisher Invader Comics website.
