bump for the sake of pimping (sad, I know, I know)
The new edition of the footnote has a swell interview with one of comics' best creators, Alex Robinson (he of Box Office Poison & Tricked fame)! Check it out! (There are lots of other goodies on the site, too...)
I'd love to hear any feedback you might have...
Yay! Love me some Alex Robinson love!

That was a good interview, but I reread Tricked the other day and I just didnt like it as much as I thought I did.
my main problem with Tricked was that it was way too structured, it lacked that crazy free form vibe that BOP had, and it felt less "real" because of itOriginally Posted by blake4000
in general, it felt too much like a movie to me
i've been thinking about this recently; because i read tricked first, but liked BOP more.Originally Posted by Jacob Lyon Goddard
i lent tricked to someone in my dorm who liked BOP, with a slight warning, and he came back with the same criticism that you have.
that, and every couple of chapters Robinson would try some Sim-esque experiemental pages, and they would fall flatOriginally Posted by andrew french
the ones at the end were neat but yeah most all of them fell flatOriginally Posted by Jacob Lyon Goddard
