5 Question Interview #136

5 Questions - number 35 - name 50 136.jpg

With True Believers 2018 fast approaching, we put 5 Questions to Nick Prolix...


What will people find at your table at True Believers 2018?

I'll be launching issue 3 of my retro one-person anthology comic Nick Prolix's Slang Pictorial in which people can read my 1960s-set serial strip The Sheep And The Wolves. I'll also have some prints and badges as well as original art pages for sale. 

What do you love about creating comics?

I do every stage of the comics myself, from writing, penciling, inking and lettering each page, and to be honest I love each part but I would say, for me it's all about being able to create a whole world, everything from the character design to the backgrounds even down to the fake adverts in the back of the comic that all add to the retro aesthetic.

What part of creating comics do you find the most challenging?

To be honest I struggle with time management and maintaining the discipline to sit down at the drawing table and not let myself get distracted with social media.

What do you love about being at a comic con?

The absolute best thing is having people come up and say that they've read and enjoyed my comic and ask when the next issue is going to be out. Connecting with readers has been a total and absolute blast, I love it!

What comic - other than your own - would you recommend people read?


Gateway City by Russell Mark Olson is a great series that matches classic Franco-Belgian inspired cartooning with a story that mashes together 1920s bootleggers and inter-dimensional space aliens! You can read the webcomic on tapastic and buy the physical issues from the artist himself at True Believers.

You can find Nick online at his website and stop by his table at True Believers 2018 and say "Hello".
