The Missoulian made some noise for Great Nations!The Missoulian gave Great Nations a fantastic write-up both online and in print:

“Science fiction and fantasy epics are exercises in world-building. That’s what Jayel Draco and his collaborators are doing with The Great Nations of Rendaraia, an art book that catalogs the people and culture of an intricate world, only to see its civilizations topple one by one.”—Cory Walsh

We all made some noise on Adrian Has IssuesLynsey G and I were interviewed about the Children of Gaia series, The Great nations of Rendaraia, and Oneshi Press on the wildly entertaining, nerdcore, pop-culture podcast Adrian Has Issues. Well all made some fun noise together on this one!

“Oneshi Press is an independent publishing company founded by writer/editor Lynsey G and multimedia visual artist Jayel Draco. Together, they have produced fantasy and sci-fi graphic novels, comic books and art books. Their projects include Tracy Queen, PACK and the Children of Gaia series, the latter of which is the focus of this week’s episode. Jayel and Lynsey describe creating such a massive, sprawling universe nearly 20 years in the making. They also stress the importance of being a “student of pop culture” in an effort to develop a culturally inclusive and progressive fantasy world.”
