David Petersen has an interview about the latest Mouse Guard: Tales of the Guard creators, Tapalansky and Eckman-lawn.
David Petersen: How did you both get in to working in comics? (Nick writing and Alex drawing)
Alex Eckman-Lawn: We actually got into comics together. Nick found a few pinups and art samples of mine on the internet and approached me with a script. We did some preliminary art and a test page or two and the rest is beautiful romantic history.
Nick Tapalansky: That’s not how I remember it at all. I’m pretty sure your mom put you in my cab and I drove you to your uncle’s place out west after you got in one little fight while playing basketball outside your school in Philadelphia. Your mom tends to be panicky. You were singing the most annoying song on the way, but somehow we came up with a few good ideas and kept in touch.
