Interview with Creator Comika Hartford
by Naching T. Kassa
Comika began her career writing and performing at the historic Lorriane Hansberry Theater in her hometown of San Francisco with Rhodessa Jones’ award-winning company Cultural Odyssey before graduating from Emerson College in Boston. She’s a co-producer of the LGBTQ series Dyke Central—available on Amazon Prime—the Horror/Sci-Fi podcast Domesticated and is co-founder of Dope Sista Magazine out of Atlanta. As a life-long fan of cutting edge episodic television, she went on to win the IndieFEST Award for Excellence, The Independent Shorts Platinum Award, Top Shorts Best Web Series, and the Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival Best New Media Award for her original web series The Grey Area. She’s also won the Best Plot Twist from The Horror Bowl Awards and Best Horror Short at the Phoenix Monthly Film Festival for her thriller anthology pilot “Hinterland Zoo, Episode 1.”
Welcome, Comika. When did you first discover Horror and what got you interested in it?
Well, it was actually an accident, I got my mom’s friend to let me watch Jaws when I was five and I was so traumatized that I could only take shallow baths for months! Years later, I was fascinated by the bts shots of the production. Once I saw it was all pretend, the drama and power of the storytelling had me. Been a Horror weirdo ever since.
What is your favorite Horror movie or TV series?
I’ll always love Alien and not just because I share a birthday with our queen Sigourney Weaver. I also love the psychological gutting of Squid Game and Two Sentence Horror series, Melody Cooper is killing it!
What is your favorite Horror novel?
Oooh… Gonna have to go with Le Fanu’s Carmilla, it’s so deliciously bisexual.

I totally get the Jaws thing. It took years before I’d swim in anything but a clear, indoor pool! Great excerpt!
