Rick Marshall posted a great interview he did with Steven Cloud of Boy On A Stick and Slither.
Steven Cloud: Honestly, I’d like a shot at syndication. It was the thing that I wanted to do when I was a kid. I know, even if I am launched, the odds are against me. But still, I’d like to scratch that lottery ticket. At the same time, I’m not hanging my hat on print syndication. Say, it doesn’t work out. There are other viable options for cartoonists these days (see: the Internet).
The bottom line is, I want to draw comics and plan to do so for the foreseeable future. The only thing that is in doubt is how long I will have to continue to work a full-time day job.
