Hey! I’m nearly famous!

Yeah yeah, I know that I’ve been saying this for years (even got a T-shirt that proclaims it way back in the beginning of my career), but apparently there are some folk that I’ve actually conned into believing it! No, really!

Fine, I know that that no one out there is listening to me (Save for you two guys), but there is a real-live reporter fellow named Mike Gelbwasser, who writes for the Sun Chronicle of Attleboro, MA. Well Mike has this whole “Online Community” he services with his fine column, and — as something of a funnybook aficionado himself — he somehow got hooked up with my pals over at the Comicbook Artists Guild (CAG).

Mike’s goal was to hook up with any and all funnybook folks here in the New England area, and well, we turned him on to our membership, and he’s been interviewing our New England rank and file. (He already spoke to Everett Soares, writer of the wonderful Sky Pirates from Free Lunch Comics — Unavoidable aside, Free Lunch is the publishing empire of my good buddy Matt Ryan, the artist on Wülf Girlz).

Anywho, to return this focus to little ol’ me, Mike (for whatever reason) thought that I’d make for a good interview, and buttonholed me for to answer a few questions for him, which I was only too happy to do. The result, it up on line. Check it out. In the interview we talk a bit about my deep, dark past, How I “broke in” to comics, as well as some of the stuff that I’m doing today. So go on over and tell Mike that his column is very cool. (I didn’t include any pics of myself as I A) didn’t want to scare anyone, and B) I’m still in the Witness Protection Program. Shush!
