which was at 23 Wall Street
Happy fans, and a good signing.

SP: Raph, thanks for the interview.

RM: No doubt man, great that you could make it.

SP: When did this all start, the comic process as a writer?

RM: 5 years ago I began working on it, and started designing some of the characters.

SP: Aside from a good story, characters, etc, tell us a little about the dream part of the title.

RM: Each issue has a dream sequence, which features a different artist. Abede Lovelace penciled pages for issue 3.

SP: Who are the visual artists you were working with on issue #1?

RM: Mark Borstel, he's  one of the visual artists, he did the colors, cover, and most of the interior pages. Atul Bakshi did the dream sequence for this issue.

SP: Who are some of your influences in comic books, and or just writing?

RM: As far as that, I would have to say Grant Morrison and Stephen King. By far two of the best at what they do. 

SP: With all creative projects comes problems, what was one major problem for you?

RM: The first visual artist I was working with left me high and dry(Ed)while working on the first issue. It really set things back and left a serious problem for me. I still think Ed is very talented, as do others, but that was really a let down.

SP: Whats your favorites list, as far as visual artist in comic's, look like?

RM: Alright:),  Jim Lee, Adam Huges, Marc Borstel,  and Jack Kirby, Just to name a few.

SP: Will the book be an ongoing series?

RM: Its only going to be 4 issues for this story line. And I have another story coming out called "Flee", which will be out next year.

SP: Raph, thanks for the invite and the comic, and congrats on getting your story out there. Cheers!

RM: Your welcome K, thanks for reading.
