An Exclusive Interview with TIM SEELEY


What movies/television/books/video games inspired MONEY SHOT as a series?

 

TIM: I guess, in part a lot of European comics, like the stuff you'd find in older issues of Heavy Metal. And Star Trek, the original series, obviously.

 

Specifically, for Volume 4 – Money Shot Comes Again – it’s a great jumping-on point. What inspired you, Tim, to get back into space?

 

TIM : I just love the series, and the characters, and I couldn’t turn down the chance to work with Gisele.

 

Tim – how much did you love working with Gisele?

 

TIM: Of late I've discovered the joy of working with other cartoonists (or writer/artists). I think it's what makes LOCAL MAN work so well, and I certainly noticed the synergy with Giselle on MS 4. She can write as well or better than me, so she GETS stuff fast, and always adds to the material.

 

Cherry really spiced up this volume! What inspired you to include her? Did Cherry’s creator Larry Welz love having Cherry included? Tim – how did you approach writing Cherry in Money Shot? Gisele – what was your approach in drawing Cherry?

 

TIM: CHERRY was one of the earliest adult comics I ever encountered... probably too young. But, to me, it represents the perfect approach to adult comics--it's really dirty, but it's also really subversive. As long as you're already going beyond the realms of "good taste," why not bring out the big, anti-establishment ideas? And Larry did just that. Larry is the godfather of Money Shot in so many ways and I wanted to acknowledge that.

 

MONEY SHOT is a fun, sex-positive book. But it does go even deeper. How does it reflect the society and times we are currently in? What does it say about humanity?

 

TIM: Well, we went through this surge of progress on sex and gender in America in the last decade, and of course that was immediately followed by a big backlash from conservatives.  Because Money Shot takes place in the future, we’re able to treat the present as the past and make fun of it, and the people who stand in the way of gender equality and sexual progressivism.

           

Talk about your favorite type of character to create/write (Tim).


TIM: I think I find every character we put in the book fun to write in some way, because the ones I don't enjoy writing usually get quickly removed from the story. I like writing funny characters, as that kind of dialogue comes a lot more naturally to me.

 

What are some of your favorite recent sex-positive movies?:


TIM: I thought POOR THINGS was pretty charming, and surprisingly sex-positive in a strange way.

 


 

Money Shot writer Tim Seeley and Vault Editor-in-Chief Adrian Wassel talk MONEY SHOT:




From MONEY SHOT writer/creator Tim Seeley:

CHERRY comix were a formative force for me. They were the forbidden fruit on the top shelf of the comic store, the little piece of subversive history to be found while thumbing long boxes. Larry Welz’s eternal balance of sexy and satirical helped me realize what an adult comic could be. It’s with great reverence that we welcome Cherry Popstar to the pages of Money Shot for our tale of billionaire greed and tech’s obsession with stealing art from humanity.”



From VAULT COMICS Editor-in-Chief Adrian Wassel:

“Erotica has always been an integral part of comics. The history of erotica comics is rich and lovely — a story of artists rebelling against shame and bigotry, demonstrating in the pages themselves and the audiences they’ve found that beauty exists in sex and romance of all sorts. Money Shot has continued that proud tradition of sex positivity. Here is a series, going on its fourth adventure into the world, that’s not actually porn, even if it’s about porn. Money Shot is more interested in warmth and humor than what’s under the underpants. And that’s the great trick of Money Shot: it sounds a whole lot dirtier than it is. Don’t get me wrong, it’s plenty cheeky (you’ll see!), but it’s a story about oddballs, a bunch of overly smart scientists who are probably the least emotionally equipped people on planet earth to be undressing in front of, well, an audience a whole lot bigger than just planet earth. And so, finally, it’s about how these people come to respect themselves and each other as partners, as friends, and as lovers. What’s more human and necessary than that?”
