Read on for Cathy’s thoughtful interview and wonderful artwork.
NOTHING MATTRESS is one of the most dedicated punx comics out there, and Brian Connolly churns these babies out on a timeline so disproportionate to their elaborateness that he can’t help but command a respectful head nod. From punx griping to autobiographical vagary to astral plane nightmare town, these comics come out so quickly you’d think he was on drugs or something. We caught up with Brian in his Sepia-tone shanty town in the former Neverland Ranch to try and get the scoop.
Ben (“Ghazi”) Snakepit is the comic juggernaut of the modern age. Imagine a robot stuck in an infinite loop playing a game of peekaboo with the most enthusiastic infant on planet earth. Now imagine a narrator doing a whole bunch of drugs and developing a run on sentence trying to say how Ben’s daily comics have been a game of chicken between him and his fans to see who gets bored first, and so far, nobody has lost. To have a fan base be genuinely interested in your life from tour stories to the most mundane occurrences shows something is going right. We caught up with Ben in his Malibu beach house to get the scoop. The REAL scoop.
We corresponded with Ben one question at a time in accordance with the visitation rules of space-jail, where he is still serving out a sentence for a crime he may or may not have committed. freebensears.com
