Avery Kaplan Interviews The Kao about “Magical Boy”
Avery Kaplan interviews writer/artist Vincent Kao about his newly published graphic novel “Magical Boy Volume 1”. “Magical Boy” brings The Kao’s popular Tapas web series to print in a gorgeous edition from Graphix / Scholastic Books. The Kao discusses the development of his colorful fantasy series about a young trans man trying to get through high school as himself and discovering that he’s descended from a long line of Magical Girls tasked with defending humanity from a deep, dark evil. The Kao also talks about his personal slice of life web comic, “Mondo Mango”, and “The Out Side”, his new anthology featuring autobiographical comics from transgender and non-binary comics creators.
Prism thanks The Kao, Tapas, Graphix / Scholastic and Avery Kaplan for this interview.
