Comics that call for fantastic creatures and alien races can be some of the most fascinating to read, and comics are among the best media for stories of this type, but sitting down and making these creatures believable is one of the most challenging parts of writing a comic. Where does an artist start with this task, and how do they make the impossible seem real?

In the first part of the episode, Ewa of Bits Fair interviews Zoe Maxine, creator of the sci-fi webcomic The Queen Candidate, about sci-fi worldbuilding and designing alien characters.

Then, Kat Feete of Sunset Grill leads a roundtable discussion with Alyssa Laraine Steele (The Ferrin), Alli Perry (Out of my Element and My Hero) and Sophie Pfrötzschner (Soul’s Journey) about the design of non-human characters and species in both science fiction and fantasy contexts.
