But I think you need some sort of glue or connective tissue to justify doing a book like that as a monthly comic.
This happens with every comic I try to make: the book slowly and shamelessly starts to ape The Sandman, insofar as you’ve got these complicated stories about real people, with this magical-ish figure circling them and exerting an unknown amount of influence.
MATTER: I’ve seen this book described as “genre-defying” which is intriguing.
Chris, would you say that’s true for you and, if so or if not, why? Everyone is playing off each other, but I'm not sure I would say I'm more deeply connected to the letterer over the artist in general, to be honest, or not more so than anyone else involved anyway, but there are definitely moments when I've felt a nice syncing of the two.
But maybe I've just been spoilt with amazing letterers and really taken it for granted [laughs].
MATTER: I noticed that the ice cream truck’s jingle is not defined by lyrics, and that the music notes are set in mostly primary colors, like the title—what were your intentions with these aesthetics?
