From Loch Ness to Riverdale, Seamonster & Samurai’s Chad Allan Thomas stopped by Comic Bits Online for an exclusive interview about his work on Archie Comics’ Sabrina.
Comic Bits Online: You graduated from Savannah
Comic Bits Online: What comics have you been working on since graduation?
Comic Bits Online: How did Seamonsters & Samurai come about?
But I’ve always loved samurai’s and medieval Japan and thought why not combine the two? So Seamonsters & Samurai came about. It’s an all ages book about a line of Scottish samurais who protect the Loch Ness Monster and keep it hidden from all prying eyes. I’m doing the book with Viper Comics, and the guys over there couldn’t be more patient. I completed the first chapter and suddenly got engaged and purposely took on an over abundance in jobs to keep us afloat before the wedding and our recent move. I’m finishing the last bit of those up now so the plan is to kick that back into gear soon.
Comic Bits Online: What about Sushi Bar, is that an autobiographical comic?
Comic Bits Online: Both of these are mini-comics, were they done as art samples to show editors or were they designed as a serious project to make money?
