I Wanted To Play In Space, Man: Andy Suriano & Matt Chapman On ‘Cosmic Scoundrels’

Cosmic Scoundrels, Matt Chapman and Andy Suriano

Cosmic Scoundrels was already one of my favorite comics before I even started reading it. The creation of artist Andy Suriano (of Samurai Jack) and Matt Chapman (the co-creator of Homestar Runner), it was the product of two creators whose work I've obsessed over more than just about anything else in the world, which made it something I was pretty much fated to love. Fortunately, it paid off with a rollicking, two-fisted space adventure of a couple of dirtbags in a ship called the S.S. Fistpuncher and one of the most ill-conceived heists in galactic history.

We recently honored the webcomic as part of our best-of-the-year awards, but to find out more about the origins and influences of Cosmic Scoundrels, I talked to Suirano and Chapman to find out how it all got started, why they printed it as a massive 11 x 17" convention exclusive, and just what Matt Chapman's favorite comics are, as well as getting an exclusive look at art from the development of the series.

Cosmic Scoundrels by Chapman and Suriano

It was pretty much a foregone conclusion that I was going to love Cosmic Scoundrels. The very idea of it, two bros cruising through space on a starship called the S.S. Fistpuncher, hijacking precious cargo from malevolent aliens and just generally pissing everyone off, is right up my alley from the start. I've been a sucker for outer space buddy comedies for as long as I've been reading, so I'm already on board before I even hit page one.

But then, if you tell me that it's written by Matt Chapman, one of the creators of Homestar Runner and the actual voice of Strong Bad, and drawn by Andy Suriano, an animator who worked on Samurai Jack and the new Mickey Mouse shorts? There's just no getting around it: I was going to love this comic from the moment it was made. And fortunately, it really is that good.
