MCM Buzz interviews Dean Haspiel

Laura Kate at MCM Buzz interviewed me: http://www.mcmbuzz.com/2012/06/11/interview-with-dean-haspiel/

"DIRK DAVIES is a sci-fi crime noir, an inspired pastiche of TV detectives like Kolchak the Night Stalker and Columbo thrown sideways into Silver Age comic books, illuminated by the likes of Steve Ditko and Jim Starlin as filtered through a psychedelic lava lamp to the tune of early electronica. At least, that’s what I tell myself every time I sit down to draw this stuff."

"Best way to deal with a creative block is to do other things. Sometimes I wash my dishes thoroughly or take a bike ride. Other times, I hop onto other projects and let my mind work out the creative problems in the back of my head until the answers and/or inspiration come a-knockin’. Nothing beats indulging other stories via comic books, novels, and movies. Stories beget stories."
