Hello and good morning, friends. Today is the day we spotlight Romantically Apocalyptic by Vitaly S. Alexius. This is a hilarious and inventive and just completely crazy webcomic that caught my eye ages ago, and the fun hasn’t let up since. It’s just gorgeous and epically illustrated and there’s a real dark humor to it that’s very addictive.
Q1] What are you working on right now, art-wise?
Q2] What is your workflow like?
Q3] Who are your top three influences (any medium)?
Q4] What is the one piece of indispensable advice you would give a comics creator for getting their work out there?
A4] Don’t be afraid to post your work on the internet. There’s an audience out there for you, you just need to post your work more on the net and you’ll find new friends, true love and happiness.
Q5] What do you think your duty is to the reader (if any)?
A5] The reader must be pleased visually and mentally.
Q6] If you could do one thing better, in regards to graphic storytelling, what would it be?
A6] Clone myself so that there is 1 billion of me. There’s always so much to do, so many things to write and draw and create and not enough arms/time.
Q7] What, if anything, do you prefer to listen to while you work?
A7] Usually nothing! Sometimes audiobooks of Russian science fiction.
Q8] What is the one comic story you read that has stuck with you throughout the years?
A8] There are soooooo many toasty comics out there. The first comic I read however was Robocop in russian. A story of urban decay in Detroit and robots! Now we have Detroit doom, but no police robots to crack down on crime.
Q9] What do you consider to be the greatest power of graphic storytelling?
