Matt Chats: Interview with Jim Zub

“The backmatter from Holly Raychelle Hughes really matches what’s occurring in the comic. How did she become part of the team?

While doing my research on mistreatment in Hollywood I came across Holly’s essay posted on XOJane.

The article was filled with creepy interactions that felt like the kind of thing I’d been putting together for Glitterbomb. Even more chilling, it was all real. I bookmarked it and thought about the possibility of including back matter in our series, something in a similar vein – Tell-all stories ripping the veil off Tinseltown.”
