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
