Trinity City Blog: Meet the Future (Part 5)

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

In this series, we sit down with teen readers and artists to learn more about what connects them to the comic.

 

What do teen readers think of Trinity City? In this interview, our Youth Consultant hrilina♡ talked with Kamille, a student at Scotlandville High School. Kamille is an artist herself, and she also sings, writes poetry, and writers about topics such as mental health.


Of all the parts of the comic book that stuck out to her, Kamille mentioned the story of Issue #1 first: "It makes you feel like you're there with the characters." In the revised version of Issue #1 readers can learn even more about the main characters, with individual pages that feature each of the characters (with bonus artwork)!


Kamille also appreciated the focus on New Orleans, a place she's already quite familiar with. Growing up, she told us, she'd visit her family there and they'd tell her all about the city's history. "And if I don't learn it from a family member," she explained, "I'll learn it on my own from researching."


Kamille is also excited by opportunities for readers to submit their own art, like our recent contest (don't worry if you missed this one... more to come!). "When [my teacher] told me [Trinity City] was doing contests, I thought it was a good idea to put my stuff out there," Kamille said. "I usually just draw and I don't really do anything with them. So I thought this would be a good chance to just start."
