We recently sat down with Alex Schumacher, the talented creator of Mr. Butterchips and Decades of (in)Experience to chat about re-launching Mr. Butterchips as a weekly strip with Slave Labor Graphics, writing difficult characters and the intricacies of solo comics craft.
CHRISTA HARADER: Alex, how are you? It’s nice to finally get to chat.
ALEX SCHUMACHER: Yeah, it is! I’m doing well. I’ve got a few things going on – pitching a graphic novel with my agent right now, so knock on wood. Maybe something will happen!
CH: Very cool, fingers crossed for you!
Let’s chat about the Mr. Butterchips relaunch with Slave Labor Graphics – did they reach out, or was this something you’d had in mind for a while?
