The last time I was interviewed on the radio about comics, I was about 11 years old, talking about a superhero I created called The Animal, who had the powers of all animals … this was before I heard about Animal Man.
Long story short, they effing censored me! Animal Man’s arch nemesis was, of course, The Hunter! A deranged villain who killed people, and then wore their skin … this was before I heard about Silence of the Lambs.
Grade 6’s is the craziest people!
Anyway, after posting some old daily diary strips here a few days ago, a friend at CBC Saskatchewan contacted me to see if I’d be interested in discussing this exercise on the air. You can listen to the interview below, for a limited time. I’m not sure if CBC keeps permanent links to their interviews … still searching for a podcast option.
They plan on posting one of my strips every week, so I’ll provide links when that happens.
And of course, I’ll soon begin posting my daily diary strips here!
