At Mythos & Ink, April and May are all about graphic novels! Attend a Q&A panel by published authors, win some graphic novels, and learn to make your own comic.
Discord is a free chat app for gamers and other communities. We use it to geek out about reading and writing!
Our Discord community is a place for fans of science fiction and fantasy to hang out together. If you are a reader, join for discussions about your favourite books, reviews by awesome bloggers, and a book club. If you are a writer, join for a community of creative minds who are getting words down onto the page. We discuss worldbuilding, chat about goals, read books on craft together, and cheer each other on!
This week is a special episode in celebration of Mythos & Ink’s upcoming graphic novels! The hosts are chatting about aliens with Lyndon Radchenka and Steven Kaul, creators of the graphic novel Infinite Universe. How do you create alien races with lived experiences so it feels like the story’s universe is inhabited by other lifeforms? How do you create that necessary feeling of unfamiliarity? What makes a believable alien?
- Emma’s example: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

- Kyle’s example: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
- Lyndon’s example: Superman
