Interview: Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener

Eva Volin

On Sunday, October 10, while attending New York Comic Con, I ran around to as many of my favorite kids comics creators as I could and asked them all the exact same questions.  Keep in mind, conventions are crazy loud and crazy busy, so there is a lot of background noise.  Let me know in the comments if you have trouble hearing anything and I’ll translate for you.

I first came across Atomic Robo when it was nominated for the Great Graphic Novels for Teens list back in 2008.  It was love at first read for the whole committee, so it came as no surprise to anyone when it made our Top Ten.  After first pawing through every t-shirt they’d brought in search of one that would fit me, I asked Brian and Scott if they wouldn’t mind answering my six questions.  They graciously agreed.
