I guess my journey with comics began with stuff like Spider-Man and Batman. I started off with mainstream superhero stuff, which I've never abandoned.
Even though I was trained in play writing and screenwriting, when I sat down to write a comic book for the first time, Alan Moore was first and foremost in my mind.
I start with something that makes me angry or confused, and then I write about it. It's a form of self-help.
I like animal sidekicks. They seem to be a pretty cool trope of post-apocalyptic fiction - just because if you're going to have this lone protagonist, they're going to need someone to talk to. Dogs are overused, and cats are dumb. So that leaves monkeys.
That was the appealing thing about comics: There literally is no budget in comics. You're only limited by your imagination.
For a lot of arcane shipping reasons, new comics, even digital ones, have a long history of only being released on Wednesdays.
By the time you have your protagonist attempting to assassinate the Pope, you've sort of signaled that everything is on the table.
