9:38pm: FLAUNT exclusive interview with Dean Haspiel

Excerpt:
“I’d say my comics border on romance, science fiction, crimes of the heart; they’re very earnest and invoke empathy. You know, we live in a cynical world right now where a lot of our TV shows and our movies are a lot darker than they used to be and as I get older I’ve discovered that I’m more interested in movies like the ones by Preston Sturges from the 1940s or noir because not only were there a lot more basic truths that were being told artistically back then, but also there was a sense of hope and I feel like a lot of today’s stories lack that. What I try to do is take the bombastic parts of what I love between you know kung-fu, horror, hip-hop, and electronica and I try to mix that up and I’m kind of DJ’ing those stories into my own work. It’s the only way I can describe it.”
