Old friend of the show, Comics Coast to Coast co-host, and animator, John Sanford of “Chippy and Loopus” joins me to talk about his recent change from R-Rated to PG-13 in his strip. What happened? What caused this? How is it working? John is here to openly evaluate his approach, his work, and where he’s going in the future. John was interviewed by me back on Episode 23 when we talked about doing a strip that was filled with violence and f-bombs. It’s an interesting foundation to the talk we have today. I recommend a listen!
Speaking of which, his lovely wife Sara joins us in the second half of the show to talk about their new joint venture, the semi-autobiographical comic called “K and J.“ It’s just starting, so get in the ground floor of what promises to be a funny, touching, and ultimately revealing slice of life comic that has John’s great art and Sara’s terrific ear for dialog.
And thanks to Jonathan Lemon of “Rabbits Against Magic” for getting me some great Tall Tale Radio promos recorded when he was up at Wondercon recently. Yes, that really is Berke Breathed on my show for 5.284 seconds.
