Sierra Barnes comes by to talk about her project HANS VOGEL IS DEAD, as well as some of the challenges of webcomics vs print, hand lettering, history, potatoes, and the unapologetic punk rock of webcomics.

Sierra Barnes is a historian-turned-comic-creator who currently lives in Washington, DC making webcomics and print comics based on history and folklore. She graduated in 2014 from the College of William & Mary with a double-major in History and German Studies, and graduated in August of 2019 with a MFA in Comics from California College of the Arts. She is particularly interested in the relationship between history, mythology, and memory, and her comics (including webcomic HANS VOGEL IS DEAD) reflect this. When she’s not making comics, you can usually find her haunting cafes and museums like a very nerdy ghost.
