Interviewed by Sequential Highway


Jamal Y. Igle is one of the bright lights in superhero comics. His art has given breath to many heroes from both the Marvel and DC universe, most notably Supergirl.
Jamal’s pet project, long in development, is Molly Danger. Molly is a ten-year-old girl with superpowers who believes that she’s descended from extraterrestrials. Want to know more? Visit her blog, but only for a limited time. Jamal has plans to bring the Molly Danger project to Kickstarter in August, at which time this behind-the-scenes-blog will transform into a donator-only site.
A gallery of Jamal’s heroic art follows this interview.
Julinda Morrow: What path led you to comics and sequential art?
Jamal Igle: When I was five years old, my grandfather took me to see Superman: The Movie, with Christopher Reeve. I had been exposed to comics before that by my father but that was the first time that it really took hold for me.
