[quote]The idea of a ‘Monster Island’ was always an appealing one to me. Alan Moore made reference to it in one of the issues Top Ten that Gene Ha [did], and gave it a feeling of more of a big hangout for monsters. I liked that idea, and that general idea had been kicking around in my head for a long time. The thing that started to put it in place was that, a while after we adopted our son from South Korea, I ran across a DVD set for Ultraman in a store, and I thought it would be nice for him to have a kid’s show to watch that had an Asian hero. Little did I know how much he would love it — he and I would even give each other the “forearm zap” when I dropped him off at daycare — and in the course of me and my wife watching many, many episodes with him, I got sucked into the big-monster genre.
A little later, Ryan Browne and I had been trying to figure out something that we could work on together that he would draw and I would write. I was thinking about something that would play to his strengths — over-the-top monster designs, crazy violence — and I thought of my monster island, and then added the idea of Ultraman guards, making it a prison, and then crammed all that into a borderline-exploitation formula halfway between HBO’s Oz and Escape from Alcatraz. Ryan did some great art, and we were working to get it going, but his star was rising, and he got a great Kickstarter going for God Hates Astronauts and then got that going as a series, and far be it from me to stand in the way of someone’s dream project. So the series was kind of nowhere for a while, until Charlie [Chu] and James [Lucas Jones] at Oni asked if I might want to draw it myself, and — although my first response was “God, no, that sounds like a nightmare” — the rest is history.[/quote]
