We all take the time to read the many interviews with creators online regarding their current projects. Unfortunately what is lacking from those interviews is the candid and personal questions about the individuals we know and love.

You are not going to get any of those here.

My customers and I at Comic Evolution have come up with a list of randomly generated questions currently totaling over 300 that we pose to any and all artists and writers in the industry who are willing to give it a try.
