Epsiode 8: Crescent City Monsters and The One Who Creates Them

On this weekʻs episode of the Moana Nui podcast, we talk with Newton Lilavois, award-winning creator of Crescent City Monsters. Powerful loa, Creole magic, and a mix of African spiritual origins make a wonderful potion of powerful storytelling.

By day Newton is a mild-mannered web developer and by night he's a creator of super characters and amazing worlds as a comic book writer and publisher of Dream Fury Comics. Born in Haiti, and raised in New York City, he enjoys time with this wife, two daughters, and his chocolate labrador. Newton is the 2020 Glyph Comic Award winner for Best Writer for his Crescent City Monsters comic book series. The series also won for Best cover and Fan Favorite for Best Work. The artist for Crescent City Monsters, Gian Carlo Bernal, won the 2020 Glyph Comic Award for Best Artist.
