serious questions, serious answers
but first, a look at Monty's cool bed.
serious Mikey question:
Is Fantagraphics using the hook that a funny, humorous "comic" comic book is actually coming into the marketplace?
I don't think so, and I'd be uncomfortable suggesting that. I'd be saying, in effect, "Johnny Ryan and Ivan Brunetti are pretty lame. This stuff is REALLY funny!" Which I don't believe, and I'd hate to suggest it even if I did think other FG humor was lame. If THEY said they were finally getting some real humor out there, I would not stop them from saying it - but if asked about it I'd probably disagree. I do find some pretty good humor in some FG books.
And it would be kinda like McDonald's saying "You can finally get good coffee here".
I guess I'll just leave it up to fine journalists and managing editors of major metropolitan weeklies to say things like that about me!
Serious eeteed question:
Why doesn't m. m. make his own weekly animated cartoon show?
I am a perfectionist and would fuss over it too much. Please note that I don't claim to be a SUCCESSFUL perfectionist - in fact, it is NEVER perfect enough for me. I could never just do a loose sloppy cartoon like that Plympton one. I'd fret over that thing for at LEAST a couple of months. Also, I have a day job, a comic book, yadda yadda...
And I would never - EVER - do a cartoon for Kanye! I hate rap and I hate Kanye. I was very disappointed that I could not leave a comment on that site and correct all those idiots who think that Kanye song is good. I was very tempted to register and comment - but then I thought "screw it".
