This week’s highly anticipated round of DIE/CAST features page 17, panel 6 of EUTHANAUTS #1.

Co-creator/writer TINI HOWARD shares this insider info: 

“One of the first things Shelly encouraged us to learn about Thalia was to think about where she lives, her living space. It ended up being something I conceptualized as a tower, a lighthouse, something a moth would fly to in the darkness. Nick worked this in in so many ways, defining Thalia through the space in which she lives, and I ended up going back to this location again and again when I was writing. When your artist crafts you such a perfect cocoon – you go back to it!”

Co-creator/artist NICK ROBLES reveals:

“The weaving and wild panels of this page were meant to throw us off the norm, let us know that Thalia is feeling disoriented. (Why? Check out the book!) As for the panel in question, she’s ascending towards a familiar place, but who left the lights on? Like a moth, she follows it, and comes face-to-face with a dying Lily who has knowledge to share. Sidenote: I love how the drapery in her shirt came out in this panel!”

See you next week for all the July 4th frolics at your home for art + alchemy, opulence + chaos!
