Online Comic Creator Emi Gennis

Today’s interview with Emi Gennis concerns her online comic Owlex.  In it we talk about writing, drawing and producing a comic in an online forum. Emi’s main character, a ghost owl named Owlex, is based on a friend who committed suicide. Despite that Owlex, the comic, is more funny than tragic. The story follows Emi and her owl friend as they deal with life after his death, the afterlife, and the bars they go to after work.
