Now have you ever wondered what it takes to be a good person? For example, if you say and do the right things, does that necessarily mean that you are always right? Or alternatively does it imply that you need to get a better television set? That's what my buddy Logan thinks anyway. Here, check out an interview we had just the other day, whilst punching a priest in the face with our contempt. 

Selling Books on Amazon

1) In your own words, how would you describe your graphic novel, ‘Soulless’?  To keep it succinct, I'd describe it as a lighthearted look at some heavy issues, told through the humorous and fantastical lens of dead man trying to get his TV back.

2) What are your own origins, Logan, and what path did you take to get where you are today?  I began writing short stories as soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil (and I still own the scrawled adventures of 'Space Pig'). I spent most of my life developing my prose writing before, in my late teens, other mediums began to leap out at me. I became acutely aware that certain stories lent themselves to certain mediums, and that if a writer was only proficient in one format that he was doing his story a disservice. So I began to write plays, films, and comics.

3) Who are your inspirations? Both artistic and story wise.  When I was growing up I liked to tell people that my stories were a cross between The Twilight Zone and O. Henry. Looking back, I feel as if I embody that statement more today than I did then. I love fiction (and attempt to emulate) that walks the line between the reality around us and a fantastic, rushing 'slipstream' just beyond our ken. I am an enormous fan of Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Carroll, James Branch Cabell, H.P. Lovecraft, and many, many others. Also, out of the realm of genre fiction, I'm a huge Ian McEwan fan.

4) What piece of music, movie, or object, would you say your novel was like, and why? In tone, it's probably closest to the film 'I Sell the Dead'. I didn't especially love that film, but it incorporated traditionally 'horror' elements in a very matter-of-fact, everyday manner.

5) If you could assign a smell to your style of story, what odour would that be, and again, why?  I'd have a hard time assigning a smell since I'm fairly olfactory-impaired myself.

6) The artist on ‘Soulless’, George Kambadais, seems to have a similar style to verigo artist, Jill Thompson. What are his origins and aspirations? A few of his favorites are: Stuart Immonen, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Darwyn Cooke, Craig McCracken, Tony Moore, and Bruce Timm.

7) What formats does your wares come in? This first issue will be released in standard, printed comic format as well as a PDF for all you e-reader/ipad folks out there.

8) If your main character was a ‘singleton’ looking for a ‘date’, who would that date be and why?  He'd just be looking for someone to do right by. Someone who made him want to be a good person.

9) If ‘Soulless’ has a message behind it, what would that message be, and why would you want to convey it? There is a message. And deep down that message is that morality isn't something external, it's something that springs from within. We're all messed up, and no matter how hard you try, you're still going to be a flawed entity. To me, the whole notion of being "good" is incorrect. What I'm hoping to say with Soulless is that it isn't "being good" that's most important, since that's something we can never achieve, but rather wanting, needing, desiring to be good, and trying your hardest.

WOW! Thanks for that Logan. You have a great book, and I encourage everyone to check it out at Kickstarter. Also, you can follow Logan on his facebook page and his twitter stream as well. Go on. You be a better person if you did.
