Whomp! Comic Interview – Richard Filyaw

I told Ronnie (artist and author and creator of WHOMP!) once that he was “the best webcomic creator known to me.” His comic revolves around Ronnie, a quasi representation of himself, Agrias, a fictional female roommate named after a FF Tactics character, Motivation Dude (or M. Dude) a purely evil individual who wears an American flag for shorts and “motivates” Ronnie to draw comics, and recently Mei, Ronnie’s girlfriend (who is bad with homophones).

Romantically Apocalyptic Comic Interview – Vitaly S Alexius

Romantically Apocalyptic is created by Vitaly S Alexius and uses his own art style which he calls “Dreaminism” – a blend of photography and digital painting. If you’ve ever watched Vitaly work at a convention you can see how his talent extends beyond his artistry – he has a powerful presence on the floor. Vitaly was kind enough to share his process on deviantART here. Take a look: http://alexiuss.deviantart.com/gallery/3239976. If you love his work as much as we do you can get a commission from him here svitart.com. Take a look at some of our favourite comics from the link collage above.

The Underfold Comic Interview – Brian Russell

Brian (creator of The Underfold) is my webcomic guru. If I have a comic idea I’m unsure of or a marketing endeavor I ask him first. He is “The Dude” of webcomics in my eyes – gotta make sure he abides. Largely his series follows four main characters: Brian (fairly normal, minus the tentacles for arms), JB (a guy with a brown paper lunch bag on his head and also tentacles for arms), Fred (a talking brown paper lunch bag and JB’s son) and Eye (Brian’s Eye). Amidst The Underfold’s storylines are one-off comics about pop or geek culture. Brian has a section for new readers if you’re wondering where to start. Click any of the thumbnails above to see some of my favourites.

Formal Sweatpants Comic Interview – Josh Mecouch

I see Josh as the future of webcomics. In the webcomic world you find yourself “checking out the competition” on Reddit a given post day. That’s how I found Formal Sweatpants. The comic I read explains Reddit culture in a way people can understand, while humanizing himself and making a very, very funny comic all at the same time. Formal Sweatpants has a few recurring characters like Trolley the Procrastination Troll, variations of Josh the creator, God, Roger the Inner Critic Troll, and a guy I call “dude with the yellow ‘stash,” but largely the comic is focused on funny rather than a particular genre or theme.

Space Avalanche Comic Interview – Eoin Ryan

Eoin Ryan is my webcomic hero. I’ve talked before about how his style directly inspired a few of our comics. But truthfully it’s more than that — reading Space Avalanche has changed the way I think about comic script creation in general. There’s a subtle patience and presentation in his panels that I like to attribute to his skill at storyboarding. He’s done everything from illustrating children’s books to writing and directing short films.
