Sam Maggs talks The Wicked Trinity

Sam Maggs talks The Wicked Trinity

Continuing our Pride Month coverage on the show, I'm joined today by Sam Maggs. Sam is a New York Times Bestselling Author who doesn't call just the comics space home. She's written in various mediums including books, video games, and comics spaces and is currently turning her attention to launching The Wicked Trinity, a dark fantasy One Shot from Archie Comics with line art from Lisa Sterle, colors by Ellie Wright, and letters by Jack Morelli. We get a little into the recent Eisner nomination announcement for her short story Friendship is Forever in the My Little Pony 40th Celebration and carve out some time to talk about representation for woman and queer spaces in our entertainment mediums.

From the publisher

Sabrina’s magical nemesis Amber Nightstone and her sidekicks, Jade Kazane and Sapphire Gill, are intent on becoming the most powerful witches in the world. Isolated from so many around them, the three have formed a coven based on their individual needs for vengeance and true freedom. But when there is some dissent among the ranks, their small coven is threatened to be obliterated from within
