About the Comic: Zombie Boy
I published my first Zombie Boy comic book in 1987, at the tail end of the black and white self-publishing comic book explosion, with subsequent issues along the years into the 90s. There’s nothing like the thrill of seeing your comic book on a real comic rack in a comic book shop! Those were heady days, and I’m really glad I was able to participate. It was a great experience.

The former president of the Southwest Society of Comic Creators, he has received two Telly Awards and a Bronze Omni Intermedia Award for his animation, and his work has been featured in Spike and Mike’s Festival of Animation. https://www.comicbookdb.com/creator.php?ID=13999

Hey guys,

Just wanted to thank you for another excellent interview! It was a pleasure speaking with you again, and I appreciate you being able to help out with my Kickstarter, especially at the midnight hour. Because of our backgrounds, there are so many directions we can go when we ramble, and that’s always a pleasant surprise. We never know exactly where our conversation will go! Keep up your excellent work, gents!
