Aspen Comics’ “10 For 10″ initiative sees the release of ten new titles throughout 2013 for the introductory price of $1 each. One of the series involved is the April-releasing “Jirni,” a story of magic and sorcery by “Soulfire” and “Fathom” writer J.T. Krul. Fresh off of his exclusive contract with DC Comics and New 52 runs on “Captain Atom” and “Green Arrow”, Krul’s workload has not diminished as April will also see the release of his first prose novel, “The Lost Spark.” A story over a decade in the making, the novel spins a tale starring a young girl on a magical quest to save her grandfather.
CBR News spoke with Krul about both projects, with the writer readily providing new details about “Jirni” and “The Lost Spark,” the challenges of writing prose and how his real life experiences have influenced his creations. Plus, exclusive cover art.
