Mark: To this day, when I think of you, I think of Superman: Last Son of Earth, Superman: Last Stand on Krypton, Aliens: Apocalypse, and even your Jonny Quest work for Comico in 1988. You made an impression on me early on. Looking at your work today, however, you have done a LOT of Star Wars work for Dark Horse. Talk about the special place that property/universe has in your heart.
Doug: When I first began my effort toward comics, George Freeman gave me a lot of advice along with Nick Burns, Both of these men helped considerably. My influences for comics are Milton Caniff, Alex Raymond, Noel Sickles, Frank Frazetta, Moebius, Alex Toth to name a few. I love these guys.
Mark: Is there a particular genre of comics about which you have said, “This is my niche”, and, if so, will that preclude you from working in others?
Mark: Is there a current project you are working on that you can talk about?
Mark: Lastly, where do you believe the medium of comics is headed? Are you encouraged? Discouraged? Worried? Excited?
