Speech Bubble: Megan Kearney

episode 39  of  Speech Bubble
With the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast opening Friday (March 17, 2017) there’s no better time to talk to Megan Kearney (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls). She’s a comic writer, artist and animator who is currently producing her own Beauty and the Beast the Comic Series web comic, but hers is not the Disney version. She tells us how the original fairytale is much more about Belle’s journey, while the Disney version focuses much more on the Beast’s character and why her webcomic tries to give equal time to both. We also discuss the evolution of fairy tales in general, her love of manga and how being the manager of Toronto’s basically made her career.
