How different is writing/drawing a comic book compared to say, doing an animated film?
CosmicBookNews: You have published work under Image/Shadowline,Urban Monsters. How did that come about? Rick Ross: Long story short, I met a couple of guys at Comic-Con who were starting up a studio and looking for artists. They liked my work but didn’t have any projects for me at the time. Months later, when I contacted them to follow up, they told me they had this project set up but were running into scheduling problems with the art. So I jumped on board and penciled 5 pages over the first weekend and just kept going from there. In all, I penciled 58 pages in about two and a half months, and never missed a deadline, all while holding down another full-time job! I’m really proud of that. CosmicBookNews: You currently have a web comic that you update with a new page every Monday, U.F.O. It seems to have a great mix of flying saucers, aliens and paranoid farmers. Can you go into detail what it is about and where you got the idea? Rick Ross: It actually began life as a pitch to Ape Enter
