Liam Lachance - Writer-in-Residence

All good things must come to an end, and this week sees the conclusion of Shaun Richens' return guest spot.  Thanks so much for your time, mate.  It's been - and always is - a great pleasure.

While it's always difficult to bid old friends adieu, the blow can happily be softened by the arrival of our next Writer-in-Residence, Liam Lachance.  He is a man who chooses his words with care and concision (as his bio below will demonstrate), so let me simply take a moment to say that he is a talented writer whose work and hustle I have admired for a good while.

I was thrilled when he agreed to join us for a few weeks, particularly because his background is primarily in written prose and not so much in comics.  I greatly look forward to see what he does while experimenting with the medium and so should you!

When asked to describe himself, he offered me the following:

Liam Lachance is a writer at, a magazine that confronts systemic violence with words and colours.

His first novel, Blu Swag, raised controversy in his hometown of Merrickville, Ontario.

Thanks again, Liam. Excited to have you aboard and to dig into your scripts!
