uncleclustersthirdbrain asked: What's the best part of writing Sex Criminals?
there’s a lot of bests. seeing what chip does with it. figuring out how the fuck i feel about feelings. figuring out a little bit better how other people might have felt about how i felt about feelings. actual feelings. getting to write dirty jokes. getting to write jokes. getting to write about love. fooling everybody into reading a romance comic. selling out. selling out again. selling out AGAIN. proving a lotttttt of people wrong — which is petty and shitty of me, i know, but i love doubling-down on gut instinct and being right. I love it just a little bit more than i love watching a buncha two-face knives-out motherfuckers trying to smile as they eat shit in the cold light of day. that’s even MORE petty and shitty of me but, cmon. it’s great. like the only thing better than winning is winning AND making a bunch of assholes feel and look like assholes — The MEATBALLS Subjugation. In all things let us be like Tripper Harrison.
really, honestly, getting to work with chip. and getting to try to one-up each other.
Like — someone uses a taser in issue 4 and chip, for literally no discernable reason, made them look like electric fleshlights. Little vaginas with handles. ZAP. it’s just — little things like that.
The best part of writing SEX CRIMINALS are seeing Chip Zdarsky’s Shocktopussies.
Though a rapidly-rising second place has to be talking to the readers. the letters are fucking AMAZING.
The best part of working on SEX CRIMS is working with Matt and his beautiful mind (I’D SHIP THAT). I draw electric fleshlights & Matt has the great idea to call them SHOCKTOPUSSIES.
