The Wages of ‘Sinfest’ — Rare Tatsuya Ishida Interview

Very little is known” about “Sinfest” creator Tatsuya Ishida (as it says on his sparse Wikipedia page) but he granted a rare interview to Publishers Weekly Comics Week as the June 17th pub date of his Dark Horse print collection approaches. Ishida talks about “flaming out” as a penciller for “G.I.Joe Extreme,” his hard-earned rise to internet fame, and the first major print publication of his strip after ten years of posting seven days a week:

“[I] hit rock bottom: out of work, broke, alienated all my friends, just a mess. That’s when I put together the first fifty or so Sinfest strips… The first seven years it was coffee and revenge. That’s what kept me going. My attitude was, ‘I’ll show them. I’ll show them all!'”

He has, and how.
