Kirsten Baldock & Fabio Moon
Talk the Making of Smoke & Guns

Smoke & Guns is a fully-loaded, fast-paced adventure set in a world where warring gangs of heavily armed girls sell cigarettes for a living and defend their turf to the death. When Scarlett, an overly ambitious cigarette girl fueled by whisky and cigarettes, takes her enterprising exploits on the road it creates chaos throughout the city, breaking down the uneasy alliance between the districts and igniting all-out war. Drawn in utterly gorgeous black and white by Brazilian artist Fabio Moon of Ursula fame and written by the Isotope's own Kirsten Baldock who brings her real-world cigarette girl experience to the party, make Smoke & Guns a truly unique action-adventure blockbuster.

Get a glimpse behind the scenes at the creation of this book, including anecdotes from author Kirsten Baldock's cigarette girl past and plenty of insight into the creative process that brought these girls to life from Fabio Moon. Read about it first at and then read their latest interview with Newsarama.
