1- Do you miss the world of Revival, and could you see yourself revisiting it?

 I do miss it. I was pretty invested in those characters. But I feel like it was a closed loop of a story, so revisiting it in sequel form would probably seem kind of cheap.

2- You’re an avid fan of the Troma horror films. What do you enjoy most about them, and what’s your favorite one?

 My favorite is Toxic Avenger 4. There's just a manic energy to them that I like. Everything is always moving, everyone is always giving their performance their all. It's a pleasant way to experience a story after so much slick Hollywood stuff.

3- You love obscure comic characters, the characters from Atlas Comics for example. Which three obscure or defunct characters would you most like to write?

 Fantomah for sure. One of my favorite designs of all time. And Tigerman of course, who looks cool. I'd take the whole Atlas line, really.

4- What current directors and films help you get your pulp horror fix since Troma hasn’t done much in awhile?

 I dunno...there's SO MUCH stuff now, it's hard to even follow creators anymore. Amazon Prime is packed with horror movies, most of them really low budget. I haven't seen anything super inspiring lately. Netflix has put out some great stuff though..THE RITUAL was impressive.

5- If you could write any character from classic literature into a new horror series who would it be, and why?

 Dracula probably, even though that's been done a bazillion times.

6- If you could write and direct any reboot what movie would it be?

Predator!

8. If you could send only one of the story arcs or graphic novels you’ve written into space with the Mars colonizers, what would it be?

 Shit, take 'em all. My office and house are packed with comps. Bury them in the red sand!

9. What character is at the top of your bucket list to write?

 Honestly, I've kind of covered most of them at this point. The kid in me would still like to see me write some Spider-Man, so maybe I'll give that a try one of these days,

10. What show have you rewatched the most often?

 The Twilight Zone. I love it a whole lot, and if it's on any TV, I'll sit and watch it. SyFy used to do day-long marathons of it over the holidays and I'd always catch at least 4 or 5 episodes.

11. If you could work with any artist, alive or dead, who would it be, and what book most inspired that choice?

 Kirby. For sure. I want to write him a Devil Dinosaur mini.

12. What aspect of the industry would you like to see us cover the most? And why?

Sales outside of the direct market. All anyone ever talks about is what sells for one week in comic stores, and that's such a small part of the larger market.

13. What’s one thing you’d like to change about the comic book industry?

The short-sightedness. Too much is done as a quick fix when I think we need long-term goals and means to achieve them.
