Giannis Milonogiannis has a hefty comics pedigree between his creator-owned series Old City Blues, drawing issues of All-New Ultimates, and collaborating on books like Spera and Prophet, but that's not all it takes to be a "Pressure/Sensitivity" comic book anthology storyteller. Talent, skill, hard work, acclaim and a kinetic style can only get you so far. In these parts, values make all the difference. Fortunately Giannis passed our test. That's right, he has sound Pokémon strategies.
