How did you get into comics? In 4th grade I bought an X-men that featured Jean Grey, and at one point she was naked, but for a few inconveniently placed trails of smoke.

Why did you go into comics? I wanted to tell stories visually. At the time, movies seemed too hard to make without a film crew and a couple million dollars. At least I felt like I could have more control over my own stories in comics.

So when are you going to make a comic? I have jerk. Check out the comics page or pick something up in the shop.

What’s your proudest moment? I don’t have kids yet, so I can be honest and say something really awesome I did. I was driving a cop car and I had 5 stars. I managed to launch my car onto a roof but I was surrounded by cops below. I was doing donuts when a helicopter showed up and opened fire. My hood popped open and the engine was smoking. I bailed out and let the car drift over the side, exploding with a chain reaction of 4 police cars below. I think the helicopter killed me after that.

What’s the secret Nick? I don’t know… I guess you’ve just gotta find something you love to do and then… do it for the rest of your life.

Wow, those are really original. Yeah okay, but maybe they’re popular for a reason. I guess my personal top 5 would be Tricky, Beta Band, Grandaddy, Cornelius, and I don’t know…Enon?

Those are still pretty lame. Okay, Tom Waits, Guitar Wolf, Nick Cave, The Misfits, and Daniel Johnston.
