Comic-con.org's The Pulse interviews Amber "glych" Greenlee about her contribution "Polarity" for the Narwain Publishing sci-fi Anthology, "Tales of a Forgotten Planet."
Glych worked on the story for about 3 months spanning the end of last year and even got paid for it (wow!). This begins her publishing career in print comics as well as continues to feed her webcomics career as well. "Tales of a Forgotten Planet" is to be distributed by Diamond within the next month and contains stories from some print comics alumni as Ben Dunn, Gianluca Piredda, Bryan Talbot,Mike Santiago, and Jesus Baron Cover. You can find out more information about Narwain and the book from their website: Narwain.com.
