I had a friendly chat with Kris from thegravyage.com.

The Gravy Age

Hello, there! Sorry for the delay in posting this newest interview, but, it was well worth the wait I swear. Tim Mayer was incredibly generous with his time to talk a bit about comics, art, and helping developmentally disabled adults get their comics published, let’s go take a look at what he has to say after the jump.

THE ANYWHERE MAN

The Anywhere Man is now available for purchase! Written by Jeff Lawler and illustrated by Tim Mayer (me), The Anywhere Man is about a young man who gains the ability to teleport after an accident at a corporate laboratory. The catch, …he can’t control where he goes. He tries to run from the corporate goons who hunt him, and from his personal problems that complicate things even more.

The Amazing, Invincible, Super Comic Book Project!

Comic Project Cover copy

This past June, I started teaching a comic book class at the Ollie Webb Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the summer, my three students wrote and illustrated their own comic book stories. We collected the stories in this book, which is only the first volume. I’m very proud and excited to share their work with the rest of the world. All of this was made possible by my friends Jim Hoggatt, Dena Launderville, Laurie Ackermann, and everyone at Ollie Webb and Art of Imagination. Another big thanks to Tom Kealy at Barnhart Press for helping us print these beautiful books.

The Batman

The Batman has alot going for him. Simple yet distinct origin story and suit. Genuinely challenging and interesting foes. And an unending supply of tools, weapons, and vehicles. I am thrilled with Nolan’s take on the Bat-mythology. The Dark Knight trilogy has risen the bar very high for all comic super-hero movies. It also leaves the door wide open for other even more interesting interpretations of the character and the story of Gotham. I hope that Bat-movies in the future will continue to explore other artists versions of that universe. I also hope that more and more people will discover the comics that have already been doing this for decades.
