Creators tag-team Q&A on El Gorgo

Here at the GCP head office, it should be pretty obvious that the love for El Gorgo knows no bounds. So it was nice to hear from Tom Mason, who has an interview with El Gorgo creators Mike McGee and Tamas Jakab over at Comix 411.

It's a good interview, with McGee and Jakab talking about the inspiration behind El Gorgo, giving some insight into the teams' creative process, and dropping some hints about our favorite surf-guitar playing gorilla luchador superhero's secret origin. There's also some discussion about the strategy of offering comics for free online, the cost of distribution and what it's like to produce a comic when it's not your day job.

As I said, it's an interesting interview and Jakab and McGee come across as open, thoughtful and passionate about El Gorgo — I recommend you check it out. And while you're at it, don't forget to give El Gorgo a look (and if you like it, buy it!); more than ever, independent comics need our support.

(Holy crap! And I just saw they've now got T-shirts for sale! Holy crap!!)
