A few things you might not know about Peter Bagge

By DCE Editorial Tuesday, April 20th, 2010
Peter Bagge, author and artist of OTHER LIVES, shares some things you never knew about him: 1: One of my first paying jobs was writing jokes for Bazooka Joe bubblegum (they accepted about 1 out of 10 jokes I submitted -- a pretty bad batting average!). 2: I collaborated on 3 different occasions with Alan Moore: once in the 80s, once in the '90s and again the the '00s. It's a once a decade kind of a thing. 3: I edited a comic anthology title called WEIRDO with Robert Crumb in the mid 1980s. A poor paying gig, but very educational. 4: Three of the main characters in OTHER LIVES are roughly named after small towns in Western Washington State. Every time I'd go for a long drive on the Interstate I'd laugh at the town names on the exit signs and think they'd make for a good names for comic book characters.
