My interview on CATCH DA CRAZE
I was interviewed a few weeks back for CATCH DA CRAZE, a comic book radio show out of New Jersey. The host, Samuel Vera, was actually a guest on my own radio show a short while back, so it was really fun to be on his show!
Sam's an amazing person, I really love his show. He's an electrifying Puerto Rican from New York whose got equal amounts of street smarts and Madison Avenue marketing savvy. He writes/draws and publishes his own comics, and his energetic personality is put to great use as a host. This guy could easily host a national tv show!
This is probably my favorite interview I've done for several reasons. Sam really knows the right questions to ask of a self-publisher cartoonist with a film adaptation to his credit. And Sam and I are very passionate about our independent spirits. Also, after having done about 6 months of interviews as a host myself, I think I have a new appreciation for being interviewed, in that I wanted to be as good an interviewee as I think I am an interviewer! I don't know if that makes sense to anyone, but I really felt I had my 'game face' on when doing the interview. Let me know what you think.
No bombshell surprises, but I do talk about the time I almost quit self-publishing after only my second time exhibiting! Also, learn about my less-than-stellar educational career! And it was cool to be able to do my first interview about DEMOLITION DOVE (as opposed to me talking about it on my own radio show!!)
