Morning folks! So, today I thought I'd talk a little about the influences behind MOON!
From a writing perspective, Bobber's influences on this adventure will, in some way or another come from his love of the likes of Spaced, Futurama, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, BlackAdder, Red Dwarf, and every great movie of the past 50 years! There's tons of other stuff in there, but I think this probably gives you a good idea of our sense of humour!
On the art side, my influences are far spread out across the comic art spectrum, with a love of European-styled tales such as Asterix, Skydoll, Ring Circus, Wonder city et al strongly keeping me inspired. From this side of the channel, the late great pre-war genius Roy Wilson had a lasting impact, along with a host of other golden age British Comic artists. Over in the states, Jeff Smith's Bone, Joe Mad's Battle Chasers and Baccalo's Steam Punk have all opened my eyes to combining great storytelling and awesome art. Of course, no sci-fi comic would be complete without a mention to the greatest comic adventure of all - Frank Hampson's Dan Dare, whose mind-blowingly beautiful completeness as a comic has never been equalled.
What do all these influences give us? Well, I hope something original, fun, and passionately created, but only you can tell us if we get it right. Stick around, kids, it's a BIG ride!
