SUNSPOT Magazine is currently conducting an interview with the creators of this new Mindless Comics release. The interview will be up soon once the world famous creators of the new DAD superhero comic character, Malphunkson, Konstantinos Petrocheilos and Some Artist.
The creators are very busy at the moment and it's been very hard to tie these three down to a sitdown interview.
So, Zoom has been the only way we were able to catch up with the trio of very capable comic book talent.
SUNSPOT - Where did the concept for DAD aka Dad Against Doom come from?
MALPHUNKSON - Well, I was on chat talking to KP about my world tour of visiting every single Comic Store and Music shop while on tour with my Thrash Metal/KPop one-person DJ group. I told him about being frustrated at seeing how there weren't enough male oriented superhero comic books. So, I decided to make my own.
SUNSPOT - Had you ever written a comic book story before?
M - No. But, I used to read them a lot as a kid.
SUNSPOT - What exact age were you?
M - 22.
SUNSPOT - Oh...
KONSTANTINOS PETROCHEILOS - We were really scratching our heads and then Some Artist called us Zkype and we had to start up that app. You know how annoying it is when you are using one app and then someone using another one? Anyway, he suggested we all drink some hot Japanese Sake since its winter down there in New Zealand and Sake is good for such an occasion. "Warm the ole cockles," were his exact words.
SOME ARTIST - What the hell dude! You make us Kiwis (The kiwi is an indigenous bird of New Zealand. And since WW2, the local human population have come to be known as Kiwi/s around the world), sound like cold people whose hearts are only warmed by drinking a heated foreign alcoholic beverage!
KONSTANTINOS PETROCHEILOS - Come on. I said no such thing. You are putting words in my mouth...
SUNSPOT - At this point our interview took a turn for the worst for 30 minutes, before Malphunkson decided to scream at the pair.
MALPHUNKSON - Pull ya head in*, you punch of packers! (*Colloquial Kiwi term.)
SUNSPOT - Our interns several hours Googling trying to find what was meant by that colloquial outburst. They learned that it's something alpha or caring males say to their weaker or ignorant counterparts, but not always - to sort themselves out. meaning that one should weigh the matter of his actions, or take mindful action. This is often said in times of misbehaviour that's devoid of commonsense, but, of course not always. There have been various similar descriptors, but these were the closest our intern could find in time for this article. Sadly, my editor later suggested that we could have saved our interns wasting all that valuable time, if I had just asked Malphunkson directly via email after the interview.
MALPHUNKSON - Good, that's settled then. SUNSPOT, you can carry on with your bloody questions. (To, KP and SA) I don't want to hear any more arguments from you two.
SUNSPOT - Yes, well as I was saying, how did you come up with the concept for the comic character?
M - After a couple rounds of hot Sake, we were feeling a little under the weather. Our thoughts were flying and I was starting to see vibrant colours like one of those black light posters...
KP - Yea, I was in the similar situation. Mine was more like that Nicholas Cage movie, Color Out of Space, or something...
SA - You're all a bunch of weak *ss mother*******!
SUNSPOT - Once again the interview was about to go off the rails. But, thankfully their editor stepped in to settle them down. Stating that, either pulled their heads in or, she would cancel the project, despite the fact that the 6 issue series was already printed and sitting in the warehouse waiting on orders.
M - Right, so as, Some Artist was saying, we were drinking and I was telling them about the tour when he told us a story about being a kid reading all these books about real life serial killers and how his big sister would never let him watch horror movies with her.
