My pal and incredible cartoonist, Hunter Jin Clark asked me a few questions a while back about the importance of having an internet presence to build/promote a career in comics. While I’m a professional floor mopper slash glory hole attendant I thought I’d take a stab at his questions anyway. Here’s the interview in full, dig it, suckers.
1. What is your primary format for comics? I.e. Mainstream, Small Press, Creator Owned, Webcomics, etc.?
I would consider what I do as creator owned, sure, but mostly I would say is I do a ‘funny animal’ comic.
Greetings pals, comic nerds or people just googling Heroes Con hoping to find their name. Welcome to my annual Heroes Con wrap-up extravaganza. Ugh. I hate the word ‘annual.’ It always reminds me of non-cannon comics filled with shitty art that costs more. It’s not everyday I can make a reference like that, in fact, it’s only 3 days a year when I can, and it’s at Heroes Con, America’s favorite comic book convention.
It’s here, man, it’s here! At long last, Rashy Rabbit Volume 1 is in my grubby meat hooks. Sure, I mean, you COULD look at it as reprints of ‘A Rabbit In King Arthur’s Food Court’ and ‘Droppin’ Anchor,’ but dude, like, it’s in color and it’s BIG! That’s how my comics were always meant to be seen, in 64 pages in full garish color.
Rashy Rabbit Vol. 1 has a Franco Belgium album vibe to it. I suspect I will be celebrated or tarred and feathered in France. Possibly both. This baby is going worldwide.
While I am making grandiose comparisons, I would say it’s Furry Freak Bros meets Donald Duck. So if you like to smoke grass and wig out to Yesterdayland, than this is the comic event for YOU! Let’s here it for me!
Look, I can tell you to buy Rashy Rabbit Vol. 1 on Amazon.com until I am blue in the face like the smurfs I so often plagiarize, but I know you’ll do what you want to do.
Fine, I get it. It’s a free fuckin’ country. But I will make two final suggestions. Come say ‘hi’ to me at Heroes Con (June 22 through 24th).
The next suggestion is to sit back and enjoy hipstermatic photos of a hot chick reading Rashy Rabbit. Think you can handle that?
What? Why didn’t anyone tell me that there is a large historical comic movie and cartoon character collection in a variety of venues nestled In its historic Camden Station a scant 8 miles from my home? (Please don’t try to find me, psychos.)
