Today I talk with Chris Andersen about his mail car, comics, the importance or non-importance of reading fiction, television, and the bad ways we teach literature . . . and we drink. To be honest, Chris stopped by just to plug his new graphic novel, and we ended up talking for almost two hours.
Chris is a comics writer and artist who’s been making comics for over a decade. His work has appeared in Sonatina and Desert Island’s Smoke Signal. His webcomic The Ego & The Squid appears three times a week at doctorsquid.com. He also runs the outsider art blog True Deviance. Chris’s new project, for which he wrote the script, is Professor Dark (the artist is the mysterious Kang Le) and it is forthcoming from Sonatina, but by donating to the Kickstarter campaign you can get special gifts like other Sonatina titles and original artwork from Professor Dark.
