Doug interviewed on Comics Coast To Coast – again!
On December 15, 2013 · 4 Comments · In Behind the Scenes, News
I recently chatted with Joel Duggan and Matt Ducharme on Comics Coast To Coast. This was my second time on the show, and I had a great time again! This time around, I talk about: my cartooning process, comic licensing, Hal-Con, GoComics.com, eBooks, Timmy Tofu, and more! Go have a listen…
Some of the specific comics mentioned in the interview are: Adventures in Fishing, Documentary (with the trilobites), Contempt (catnip mouse: defense attorney), and Stomp (Canadian Godzilla).
We also mentioned Comic Rocket a few times – here’s a link to it!
If you have a follow-up question about anything I mentioned in the interview, throw it into the comments here and I’ll answer it!

Is being on GoComics.com the equivalent of being a syndicated newspaper cartoonist? What is their model for compensation?
I’d say print and online syndication are different beasts, but they are connected and involve a lot of the same people. One of those people is Universal Uclick president John Glynn, who explains it all more eloquently than I can – here’s an interview where he talks about how syndicates are combining their print and online worlds. As for the compensation model, I think it varies from artist to artist.
As I said in the interview, I’ve had a fantastic experience working with GoComics. I highly recommend them to all my fellow cartoonists! 🙂
Had a listen to the interview on the weekend. Good times! Didn’t realize you had drawn so many comics (over 2000!). I’d have to agree that it’s a shame that we can’t easily surf through the archive, but I guess that just gives us more incentive to buy the books! 🙂 Congrats, Doug. Keep goin’, man!
Thanks John! Yeah I’ve drawn a ridiculous number of comics! Thanks for the suggestion about the archive-surfing – I’ll keep it in mind for the next site redesign! In the mean time, you could try Joel and Matt’s suggestion of using Comic Rocket to surf my comics. Or you can add me on the GoComics app!
