All-Ages in a Onesie. Corey Barba Talks ‘Yam’
By Zack Smith
It’s a lovely life on the island of La Leche de la Luna. On an average day, you might find yourself dealing with a cupcake that thinks it’s a pet, a flower that wants to start a rock band, turtles with delicious treats for shells, or even meet the girl of your dreams…and hang out with her in her dreams.
It’s the life of an adventurous little boy with a jetpack and orange onesie known as Yam. For years, his adventures have appeared in Nickelodeon magazine, and now they’ve come to comics in Top Shelf Productions’ new collection Yam: Bite-Size Chunks, which features an all-new 38-page story. Yam’s creator, Corey Barba, talked to Newsarama about his surreal creation, and how it came to be.
