Cartoonist Zack Giallongo tells CBR about "Broxo," his debut graphic novel from First Second Books, a fantasy novel of zombies and barbarians, and explains why fantasy stories require a map.

Cartoonist Zack Giallongo is known to fans of mini comics, but he's hoping to get wider recognition thanks to First Second Books who just released his debut graphic novel, "Broxo." The story is a fantasy tale about barbarians, the dead coming to life to feed on the living, a witch with uncertain loyalties, a missing clan in a remote region and a teenage coming of age story -- to the extent that barbarians come of age as teenagers.

I don't think 'getting it right' had anything to do with targeting at younger readers. Strong characters and strong relationships are paramount regardless of readership.

"Broxo" is on sale now.
