Rock & Tin
When you started posting Rock & Tin online in 2013, you posted “With no schedule, but posting as often as possible.” How did that work out? Joel
What was behind your choice of a simple method of visual storytelling for Rock & Tin? Joel
(Reminds me a little of Captain Underpants by Dave Pilkey.)
You opted for a black and white look for Rock and Tin. Was this an asthetic choice? Matt
What’s next for Rock & Tin
Congrats on the full funding (and stretch goal) for Rock & Tin! I thought we could start the show off with discussing; What happens now? Joel
What sort of organization practices do you have for the fullfilment of the Kickstarter campaign? Joel
The Rock & Tin campaign is for printing costs. Can you take us through how you (personally) “build” a graphic novel to this point. Joel
Promoting your comic…
How about a discussion about comic promotion, since it’s always a hot topic and things have really changed. It’s tougher than ever. Tom
Upcoming Projects:
Now that Rock and Tin is done, what’s next? Matt
A little chat about my next project Pong the Mystic Tom
Previous Projects
A quick aside; unlike another science fiction story, Marooned actually completed a five year mission. How did it feel to wrap it up? Matt
In creating Rock and Tin, what were some things that you wanted to do differently from Marooned? Matt
Here’s a wacky, Brian Dunaway-type question; what’s your stance on space mining? Matt
