Webcomics Confidential

A young person majoring in Sequential Art at a well-known art school wrote in with a list of twenty questions for me. I was happy to answer them, but since the questions seemed so universal, I asked permission to answer the questions in the form of a video so I could share it with others as well. This series will be in four parts — maybe more.


Today's show is brought to you by Wacom — makers of the incredible Wacom One! At the beginning of the year, Dave and Brad shared their goals for the year. But that was before the world was turned upside-down by the coronavirus pandemic. The guys discuss what has changed over six months.

Questions asked and topics covered...

  • 2020 Goals revisited
  • Why weren't there more "neo-comics" like Homestruck?
  • The importance of gutters

Best of Evil Inc — Vincent Price

This week, I’m going to spotlight some standout Halloween comics from Evil Inc. And I can’t think of a better way to start off than with Evil Inc’s Director of the Mystics and Occult Department, Dr. Vincent Leonard. Dr. Leonard is a pretty open homage to the great Vincent Price (Vincent Leonard Price), who was famous for several great horror movie turns (like The Fly and all of those wonderful Roger Corman flicks) — and, of course, for providing the epic rap at the end of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. From his Personnel File: Dr. Vincent Leonard is the director of the Mystics & Occult Department, reporting directly to Dr. Whoosh. He is working on magically changing his last name, but he knows that this, like all magic, comes with a Price.
