COMIC BOOK YETI: So, you're coming to the end of Kaijumax – how do you feel? Relieved? Disappointed?

ZANDER CANNON: More relieved than disappointed, for sure! It's always been a pretty exhausting book, and I've gone through a couple medium-sized burnouts in the process of making it. Also, I always felt like this series, even though it was pretty rich soil for stories, had an expiration date of sorts. Since it's a satire, I felt like when I started getting to the point where I had to really assess the established lore and keep it consistent (rather than just go for the funniest joke or most relevant political metaphor), it would probably be best to move on

and go out on a high note.
