“A rock ’em sock ’em hum-dandy knock-out of a graphic novel!”

Talk about your favorite kind of character to write about
PT: A little arrogant, but they can back it up. The whole world against them, but they won’t back down. A life outside the current plot. People who find joy in life, and celebrate the differences in people and cultures, and will lay it all on the line not for pride, but because they feel it’s the right thing to do.
CC: I like to write about spunky, smart, energetic young women, and well-meaning but slightly hapless young fellows. But the absolute most fun are villains, because I love how committed they are to their goals, and it’s fun to come up with the evil deeds they’re willing to perpetrate to achieve those goals.
Talk about your least favorite kind of character to write about
PT: I don’t really have a least favorite. It’s up to a writer to make those characters feel genuine and interesting. I have a lot of friends who write comics, and now and then one of them will say something along the lines of, “I don’t want to write that particular character because they’re soooo boring.” It’s like, well, that’s literally your job: make them interesting. If there’s a reason a character is “least favorite,” jump on in there and fight to make them feel intriguing.
CC: It’s really boring to write perfect people who are perfectly good. There’s just nothing to bite into. However, It’s fun to write the people who need to live or work with those people, so they do make very useful secondary characters.
Talk about your favorite kind of character to draw
CC: I love to draw older fellows with gnarly facial features—big noses, heavy brows, wrinkles and scars. If they’re evil villains, more’s the better!
