The comic known as Bored and Evil has asked for an interview. The creators Robert Koch and Steve Napierski have been kind enough to do a double interview. Thanks to them both, read on for more information...

1. How long does it take to create a Bored and Evil comic?

Robert Koch:
The writing doesn't take long because I map them out mentally before I type them. The art takes a little bit longer.

Steve Napierski:
Unless there is new characters or artwork to create, my part takes about 15 minutes a strip tops.


2. How do you feel that the comic is almost at it's first anniversary?

Steve Napierski:
Happy that we've made it this far, most webcomics end pretty close to the beginning of their run.

Robert Koch:
Proud that we are still around and gaining readers all the time.


3. Who would win - Freddy or Jason?

Steve Napierski:
Even if they wouldn't have had the movie, I would still say Jason. He's too stupid to realize when he lost.

Robert Koch:
It's all about location. Jason is so damn resilient in the real world but in the dream world Freddy's powers are so sketchily defined that he could just conjure up a dream dinosaur to eat Jason.


4. To Robert: Did you go to any art classes to increase your drawing skills?

Robert Koch:
I had high school art. Most of my skill (or lack thereof) comes from years of relentless sketching in an effort to avoid responsibility.


5. For new readers, could you explain what the comic is about?

Steve Napierski:
I think Robert is best suited to answer this question.

Robert Koch:
It's about a dork that lives with monsters. Also it's a lot about eating and masturbation.


6. Do you both feel glad to work on the comic?

Steve Napierski:
Personally, I find it rather relaxing to work on the comic. Also, its really cool to be able to work on a collaboration like this with a close friend.

Robert Koch:
Writing the comic gives me a sense of accomplishment that, while unusual and unexpected, is very good. It's fun to collaborate with a friend and watch how ideas spin off.


7. Anything you regret about making Bored and Evil?

Robert Koch:
I regret that I have but one life to give for my webcomic.

Steve Napierski:
Regrets? None that I can think of. There's a lot of stuff I would like to see happen as a result of the comic, but I am very pleased with the product we have created.


8. Any webcomics out there you read?

Steve Napierski:
Lots! There are 11, not including, Bored and Evil that I make sure to read on a regular basis: PVP, Real Life Comics, Sinfest, Little Gamers, Penny Arcade, Theater Hopper, MegaTokyo, Boy on a Stick and Slither, Chugworth Academy, White Ninja Comics and Butternutsquash.

Robert Koch:
I have a bad memory and forget to check for updates but I read PVP, Penny Arcade, Little Gamers, Boy on a Stick and Slither, Chugworth Academy, The Good Little Robot and The Outer Circle.


9. Which character would you like to meet the most?

Robert Koch:
Holly, for obvious reasons.

Steve Napierski:
Holly.


10. The concept of characters is difficult to make. How long did it take for you to design the characters and why?

Robert Koch:
Visually most of the characters come from sketches so they don't take long to do. As for concepts, it didn't take long at all because I knew I wanted one to be based on me and one to be based on Jason because I like drawing the hockey mask. The characters are basically just amalgams of people I know and my favorite horror movies.

Steve Napierski:
The only character in the comic I created was Holly and that's because Robert has a problem drawing women. It took about 3 hours from initial concept to finished product.


11. What program(s) do you use to make Bored and Evil?

Steve Napierski:
The pencil sketches that Robert gives me are scanned in Photoshop. The vectorizing of the art and layout of the comics are done in Illustrator.

Robert Koch:
Microsoft Word.


12. Ninja or Samurai?

Steve Napierski:
Ninjas are cool, but have no honor. I'm gonna have to say Samurai.

Robert Koch:
Samurai have cool armor and all but ninjas are so SNEAKY!


13. To Steve: How long did it take for you to design the website?

Steve Napierski:
Honestly, not long. The design part was based on a color scheme that I wanted to use for another site. Designing it was easy, creating the code that runs it took a little time.


14. Anything you want to add? Maybe something about sandwiches?

Steve Napierski:
Our year one annual should be out end of June early July and we are fishing around for publication if anyone is biting.

Robert Koch:
Rye is good for sandwiches.


Well that ends the nicely layed out double interview with the Bored and Evil creators Steve Napierski and Robert Koch. Thanks for the pair to give us this interview.

They stole my brain.
