One comic book creator that has steadily been rising up the ranks ever since 2016 is Ram V. Starting with his self-published original graphic novel Black Mumba, with artist Devmalya Pramanik, Ram has since worked on creator-owned titles at Image Comics and Boom! Studios while building up an impressive line of licensed work at major publishers, including DC and Marvel Comics. Ram’s work has garnered him well-deserved nominations for both Eisner and Harvey Awards, among the most prestigious creative honors within the comic book industry.
2022 has been a particularly impressive year for Ram, with his acclaimed creator-owned series with Filipe Andrade, The Many Deaths of Laila Starr, collected by Boom!, his run on The Swamp Thing with Mike Perkins coming to a planned end, and his DC titles Aquaman: Andromeda, with Christian Ward, and T, with Rafael Albuquerque, both launching this summer. In addition to his creator-owned and DC work, Ram also helms the Venom ongoing series at Marvel after relaunching the title last year with co-writer Al Ewing and artist Bryan Hitch. And through it all, Ram still looks for ways to reinvent himself as a writer and storyteller while embracing the creative possibilities of the medium he clearly loves so deeply.
In an exclusive spotlight interview with Popverse, Ram reflects on the origins of his career as a creative writer, explains how he approaches his collaborative process with each of the teams working with him, and shares how he applies his own narrative sensibilities to established characters and worlds like Batman and Swamp Thing.
