QRD Interview

A few months ago, I did an interview with Brian John Mitchell over at QRD.  You can read the interview by clicking on the link below


Be sure to check out some of the other interviews from other indie comic artists, such as my bro, Mike Kitchen, Troy Little, Garry Scott Beatty and Dave Sim, to name a few.

    So the question is, Blair, do you like ketchup on your fries?

    Other than that, I enjoyed the interview. When we (and believe me, I include myself in that ‘we’) talk about preferring the printed book to a digital experience, are we neglecting the truth-we-dare-not-face? The fact is, and this isn’t earth-shattering news I’ve uncovered, more and more people, apparently, are going to be reading their comics (books, newspapers, etc) off of a screen. Don’t we as creators want our work seen by more readers?

    As a reader/collector I totally prefer the printed page. And like you, as a publisher, I do indeed like my work presented on paper pages. But I still have to kick myself every so often and consider moving my production to digital AS WELL as print copies. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

    This whole digital/paper question if really the key issue I think we each need to figure out for ourselves as publishers and creators. And I know both you and I and others have discussed this countless times….

    Okay, now you got me hungry for fries!!

    Yes, definitely ketchup with my fries….

    I couldn’t agree with you more that digital is here to stay and is on it’s way to be a major player in how comics are read. It’s something that I’ve been looking into, but haven’t fully figured out how to go about putting my comics out there yet. With that said, I think that print comics (whether standard comics or trades) will always have a place. I see it in the music industry with vinyl making a comeback, which I imagine is a way for the record companies (or artists) to sell something that exists in the real world (non digital) as well as filling a spot for the ‘collectors’ and people who like to have something on their shelves. I think eventually we’ll be forced to cater to both the digital and print markets in some form.
