You've described Genecy as Conan/Silver Surfer if he had been raised on Apokolips, were those elements the inspiration for the character/story?
In my opinion, people are going to compare Kaizaxx to Conan and Genecy to the Silver Surfer and so would I, probably. The entire planet Apokolips is run and owned by one being who is feared throughout the known Galaxy and when I finally introduce that type of character to the series, it will blow your mind! But Conan, the Silver Surfer and Apokolips actually weren't elements of inspiration for me - but then again ...
What were you're comic influences when writing the story?
Much of Tolkien, Rothfuss, Starlin and Wolfman. There are others. Many others.
How did you end up working with Eddie Barrows?
We started searching all over the cosmos for a realistic artist via the internet. We found Eddy before DC did! Once he signed with them we had to continue a desperate search for an artist who could fill those shoes. We found that in the amazing Diego Bernard! Diego is one of the very best artists to date. Watch and see!
For the second issue you've chosen to go with Kickstarter. Why did you feel this was the best choice for getting the second issue out?
(LOL!) When people go to http://www.kickstarter.com/
projects/genecy/genecy-2-the- cosmic-theatre-continues?play= 1&ref=search and get past my funny face, they'll see that I have to pay the pencil artists, the colorist and the letterer. That's after I pay the mortgage payment, the gas and electricity, water and gas now is what ... almost four dollars! My hope is that we could get a little help to complete the second issue and start the third.
What's been the major difference of choosing Kickstarter versus the way you released the first issue?
