Universe performs the song “Memory Foam” at The Moving Castle on April 17.
Nate Powell has performed in bands like Soophie Nun Squad and now sings in the melodic hardcore/metal band Universe. He also draws comics and illustrations with his graphic novel “Swallow Me Whole” winning the 2009 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Novel.
Nate was in Chicago this weekend on a mini-tour with Universe scheduled around the C2E2 comic book convention. During a break from signing books and talking to comic-book enthusiasts, Nate talked to me about the weekend and balancing passions and obligations in his life.
