Do you identify with any of these characters? It is an odd assortment of characters - are you anything like the world of Red Meat?

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

Did Earl have any particular origin or did he spring, fully formed, from your personal dementia?

Re: Comixpedia Community Interview #4: Max Cannon of Red Meat

Well, I guess my main question is: Where have you been? You haven't posted to your own message boards since 1998, and the most recent "news" on your site is a pair of interviews from 1996. I was beginning to suspect that "they" had gotten you and Red Meat was being produced by an evil consortium. Does this represent your re-emergence as a personal presence on the Web? I hope so, because I really have a lot more questions for you than this one. You've been teddibly mysteedious.

The MEat Locker contest - do you do that regularly? DOes it give you a lot of interaction with your fans? (Did you announce the contest thru the website or through your printed strip?)

Re: Comixpedia Community Interview #4: Max Cannon of Red Meat

Is there any particular rhyme or reason to the titles of the strips?

Re: Comixpedia Community Interview #4: Max Cannon of Red Meat

Is the art created by you? (or is it clip art?) Do you have to do much actual "work" in creating each strip (what's the creation process?)

Re: Comixpedia Community Interview #4: Max Cannon of Red Meat

Do you plan to do anything with more with the web in the future? New comics or new ways of delivering Red Meat online?

Re: Comixpedia Community Interview #4: Max Cannon of Red Meat

Have any of your strips been too out there so that papers refused to run them? (any examples?) What has been your experience with Alt Weeklies that your comic seems to run in (mostly)?
