James Kochalka really needs no introduction, does he? Chances are if you like comics and have had an internet connection at some point within the last eight years, you're bound to have encountered his daily American Elf diary strip. Starting his career in the mid-Nineties, he's since gone on to achieve massive popularity and acclaim with a wide selection of books and comics that, whilst diverse, all carry the same unmistakable Kochalka-ness.
Of all your comics, Dragon Puncher looks like it might have been the most fun to create. Is that fair to say?
I feel a great sense of loyalty to them, and it would certainly be easier for me if they had room to publish ALL my work at a pace that keeps me happy... but they really can't. So, I don't know exactly what's going to happen that one. The book is going to be crazy awesome, though. It's just a really silly, funny, adventure comic for kids.
A big thanks goes out to James for resisting the temptation of playing Metroid and taking the time to answer our questions. His latest book, Dragon Puncher, is currently available via Top Shelf's website, along with a whole bunch of his ultra-fun previous work. Recommended for adults, children, dragons, cats and Glorkian Warriors alike (or any combination of the above), we enjoyed it a lot and bet our Game Boy cameras that you will too!
