4.1: Yo John: what are your favorite comics?
Well, now that Love & Rockets has come to an end, the only titles I buy anymore [when I can find them] are Action Girl Comics and Rob Hanes. Seems like I have less time and inclination to read them anymore: I'd rather make 'em! But I can mention a few that have been especially influential and are still faves of mine:
Love & Rockets, Zot!, Concrete, Mai the Psychic Girl, Stinz, The Desert Peach, 2001 Nights, Watchmen, American Splendor, Yummy Fur....
4.2: Yo John: who are your favorite artists?
I have lots, but these are the ones I currently find to be the biggest influences on what I'm doing now:
4.3: Yo John: what comics do you do?
4.4: Yo John: how can I get some?
4.5: Yo John: why have I never heard of you before?
Like I said: small press doesn't get you rich or famous [unless you're Matt Feazell!]
4.6: Yo John: why should I care about 4.1 thru 4.5?
....uhhhhh.... I dunno.
