Interviews and Articles

When the comic was out, there were a few interviews with both Mantra (not easy, considering she's a fictional character), as well as her creator, Mike Barr. Here are some of the stories I've been able to track down:

Articles About The Comic

"The Magic of Mantra"
An interview with Mike Barr from just before the series started. Some interesting insights into the character and the man who created her.

The Hero Illustrated Interviews

"Mantra: The Hero Interview"
An interview with Mantra by Hero Illustrated, obviously during an early point in her career.

"Prime: The Hero Interview"
An interview with Prime by Al Baker (the fictional scourge of the Ultraverse publishing world), as published in Hero Illustrated. Contains a couple of cute comments about Mantra.

The ULTRA-Monthly "Stories"

"Hocus Pocus"
A two-page layout of (ahem) "Mantra" in ULTRA-Monthly as arranged by Al Baker. Why let a little thing like the truth get in the way of a good story?

"Fury Like A Woman Scorned"
Al Baker goes over the top with his account of his encounter with Mantra. (Who apparently wasn't too flattered by his earlier story.)
