Creator Corner: Brian Michael Bendis & André Lima Araújo on Phenomena: The Golden City of Eyes

Comic Book Couples Counseling Podcast

Episode 150! "Not an apocalypse...something far more interesting." André Lima Araújo and Brian Michael Bendis celebrate our 150th episode by providing an immensely eclectic conversation discussing their new all-ages sci-fi adventure saga, Phenomena: The Golden City of Eyes. These two creators are two great tastes that taste great together despite their frequently contradictory points of view. As you'll hear, Araújo and Bendis see the world quite differently, but their opposing sensibilities unleash something utterly unique through the collaborative process. Phenomena: The Golden City of Eyes is the first part of a trilogy published by Abrams ComicArts. It's a rollicking adventure set in a future where our world has...changed. Three wanderers (Bolden, Spike, and Matilde) stumble into each other and reluctantly form a bond while attempting to unravel the mystery of the titular city. Bendis provides a bubbly, naturalistic voice to Araújo's stark yet hyper-realized illustration. You've probably experienced numerous comics from both parties, but we promise you've never seen anything from either of them like Phenomena. The comic is a heap of contradictions: joyous yet harrowing, fluffy but deadly serious. At the center, Araújo and Bendis suggest an urgent reckoning with storytelling, an art form we too often take for granted. Phenomena: The Golden City of Eyes hits book shelves everywhere on 9/13. All you have to do is turn the cover. Panel one will ensnare your attention. Keep up to date on all things Brian Michael Bendis by subscribing to his Substack.

INTERVIEW: Brian Michael Bendis and André Lima Araújo Discuss 'Phenomena'

But Why Tho?

Phenomena: The Golden City of Eyes is the first book in a new YA graphic novel series by Brian Michael Bendis and André Lima Araújo from Abrams Books. It's an art-forward story of three desperate characters in our world after something strange and universe-changing took place. We sat down with its creators to discuss how their collaboration came to be, what makes this book special for them as creators, and how taking an art first, dialogue minimal approach lent itself to making such a satisfying journey.

His 111-consecutive-issue run on Ultimate Spider-Man with Mark Bagley holds the record for longest continuous writer/artist partnership in Marvel Comics history.Bendis was also the driving creative force behind Marvel's biggest events of the 21st century, including House of M, Civil War, Secret Invasion, Dark Reign, Siege, Avengers vs. X-Men, Age of Ultron, X-Men: Battle of the Atom, and Civil War II. With his artistic collaborators, he's responsible for co-creating some of Marvel's most significant new characters of the last two decades, including Miles Morales, Jessica Jones, Maria Hill, Ronin, Riri "Ironheart" Williams, and Daisy "Quake" Johnson.That doesn't even include his creator-owned work, currently being published by Dark Horse Comics, which includes Joy Operations, Pearl, United States vs. Murder, Inc., Scarlet, Cover, Powers, and the Jinxworld line of crime comics (Goldfish, Fire, Jinx, and Torso).He's also writing some "detective comics" about a league of justice or superhero legion or something, but we weren't able to find any information about that.
