Pokey the Penguin is a charming surrealist webcomic that celebrated its 10th year anniversary this past February. Pokey wanders around the ARTIC CIRCLE (and not the Antarctic with the rest of his penguin bretheren) with his buddies: Little Girl, Headcheese the Hippo and Mr. Nutty the Snowman.
Justin Pierce reviewed the comic for ComixTalk back in 2003, summarizing things with this pithy statement:
Yes, it's true. I AM POKEY, too. How 'bout you?
All of which got me to thinking, what the world needs now is an interview with Steve Havelka, the alleged creator of Pokey the Penguin. But since the only way I found to contact someone connected with Pokey was the email@example.com email address and I got a response from the PENGUIN himself, I figured why not go with that?
