Svetlana ChmakovaGirlamatic, a creator-driven online comics community recently announced that one of their most famous creators, Svetlana Chmakova will be reviving her original webcomic series, Chasing Rainbows.

To celebrate, Girlamatic will be hosting a podcast this weekend with an interview with Chmakova and are looking for questions from fans and readers. If you have questions for the creator of Dramacon and Nightschool, send them in before Saturday night, December 5, 2009 either via Twitter or email to podcast host Lynne Lau. Just tweet your questions to @lynnlau or send them via email to lynn@tentative.net .

The interview will be recorded on Sunday, with the podcast to be available sometime in the coming week on Apple's iTunes store.

Chasing RainbowsChmakova last worked on Chasing Rainbows in 2005, and left it unfinished for several years, mostly because she's been busy working on three volumes of Dramacon and Nightschool, which is serialized monthly in Yen Plus magazine. So this return to a weekly webcomic is a surprising, but happy turn of events for her fans who have been waiting for this romance/drama series to continue and perhaps eventually conclude.

In the meantime, you can get caught up with Chasing Rainbows at Girlamatic, or check out my interview with Chmakova, as she describes her beginnings and her plans for Nightschool.
