I guess you mean Y: The Last Man.  You threw me by saying "the last boy on Earth," since that was the actual subtitle of Kamandi.

So how'd you get into writing comics?  I've tried to break in a few times, but I've never even received a response to my submissions.

That's it. My girlfriend is the artist and co-creator of the series and the monkey was a tribute to Ampersand, Yorrick's helper monkey.

I got into writing comics by doing my own mini for 18 issues called "I" and another 6 issue series called "SQUARES". I met the editors of Bongo at the first Alternative Press Expo and gave them some of my books. Then asked if I could send a spec script. Then about two years later I got a back up story, then a lead story and now I'm the regular writer for Simpsons and occasional writer for Futurama.

Ian, "Hail to The Cat" was the best issue of Simpsons Comics ever, and "Kickn' it Old School" was actually my favorite issue of Futurama comics. No that's not random sucking up, you're one of my favorite writers, I mean it. I'm glad to hear that you got into the industry by writing your own mini-series, because I'm in the process of doing the same thing right now.     tongue

Yeah, I sound like a douche bag. I'll leave you alone now.

..... Still haven't got issue 18 yet.

@Action Jacktion: If you're still serious about getting a comic out there, and you're not against using a self publishing banner, send me an email. I can put you in contact with the guys I'm publishing mine with. You have to pay for printing costs, but they'll hook you up with an artist, and help you get the word out about you're comic. From what I'm told, it's the best way to start out, because the bigger publishers (Avatar, Dark Horse, etc.) won't even give you a second look unless you've got some experience under you're belt.

I just got issue 18. IMO, one of the best Futurama Comics since "The Bender You Say?" or "The Cure For the Common Clod". But I must know what happens next! I must!

Continuing what Newhook said, I like Simpsons Comics. And yes, "Hail To the Cat" is a great issue.

LOL! I thought I was the only one who caught that!

Glad to know it wasn't just coincidence. :-D

Issue #18 was pretty good, I thought! Too bad 19 wasn't as good as this one.
And I too think that 'Hail to the Cat' was a good issue.
