Interview: Terry Moore

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 suspect I don’t really need to introduce Terry Moore, but just in case, here you go:  Probably best known for Strangers in Paradise, Terry has also created books for tweens and teens.  Echo, Terry’s newest self published series is great for teens — so great, in fact, that it made the Great Graphic Novels for Teens list in 2009.  Terry also created one of my favorite comics for tweens, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, for Marvel Comics.  I was nervous talking to Terry and garbled up his book titles, but he was too much of a gentleman to correct me on tape.
