A great interview Brigid Alverson did for Graphic Novel Reporter yesterday.
Hope you enjoy.
Please feel free to leave a comment on the interview and let them know if you enjoyed it.
It’s true. He never said date. Alex (and the rest of us) just assumed it was a “date” dinner. (Or should that be “dinner date”?)
Of course, him being all smug about it isn’t going to help his case.
Nice save, Dan. Though, the irony of it is that you are actually telling the truth, despite the fact that she probably won’t believe you.
What’s with the name tag?
is it a coincidence that Daniel looks like Harry Potter and that his name happened to be the same as Radcliffe’s first name? lol
Why didn’t I notice before? They have shiny hair.
– Beloved son, annoying brother. He will be missed…
She implied that it might be considered a date when he invited her, whether he denied it or not.
The name tag: http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/unisex/popculture/9f70/
Does anyone else feels scared by the lady with the Angry Crazy look? *whimpers*
does anyone believe that Daniel’s going to get a good ol’ spanking waaaay into Kingdom come? 😛
Oh, and BTW: most girls, would neeeever believe a guy saying that. XDDD
Nice to see the author keeping its bar high!
Ooh, seen that shirt before, didn’t make the connections. hehehe, is there no end to the PB references possible in this comic? not that i want there to be 😛
True that Daniel never actually said “date”, however, he spoke about it as if it were. Sorry Daniel, you’re just as busted even with the technicalities.
Anyone else considering the idea that Nicole just might be messing with Dan? *shrugs*
I love that badge, but didn’t know a shirt was available!
Think Geek will own my soul…
@ interview: “a fantasy comic that has attracted a large following among teenage girls.”
ouch Scott, that hurts. I don’t like that interviewer ^^. last time i checked i was a 19-year-old-boy.
(which still is weird, considering i still like webcomics n stuff @ my age, but who cares.)
anyway, i’m with Tempest on this one.
It would seem that Dan will be in the hot seat before TOO long!
*sigh* Sorry Scott but, once again, the pouch, the magic pouch! After all it was “urgent” that Dan get the letter and get his butt in gear to Dreamland!!
Again, sorry to keep bringing it up however in my 50+ years defense, I ain’t getting any younger!
if she is, dan won’t be too happy the moment she makes it known. LOL, wouldn’t mind seeing that.
in my case, the gender is correct, but the age is far off… on the other hand, my mind’s still stuck 10 years in the past, so… 😉
whoo! what great insight! That interview gave a lot of depth in what you do for Dreamland. Lmaonade, Dan’s screwed hahaha. I DID NOT KNEW YOU WORKED FOR SEGA?! On what games Scott? You’d probably like influenced my gaming habits like in a weird, ‘we-were-supposed-to-meet-by-reading-your-webcomic-thingy-thing’ ??
Nicole: WHAT SO I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR A DATE?
Ah, crazy women.
Dude.. you worked on Digimon? LOL! That’s awesome! I love(d?) that show :3
I like how you explained the difference between writing the books for your boys (awe..) and writing the Dreamland Chronicles. The analogy suits the difference perfectly. Bugs Bunny vs. The Chronicles of Narnia ^-^… Also, I don’t know much about your sports skills, but your writing skills have got to be better as they are truly great. Especially since you’ve started relying more on the non-verbal language.
On Characters, I really appreciate how you stay true to form with your characters (and sub characters etc.) You don’t just change-it-up to make the arc easier.. They stay real throughout and any changes have been seen realated to interactions in their world, not out of the blue. That’s cool.
*laughs* your wife sounds awesome.. threatening bodily harm if you leave her behind.. *chuckles* sounds like something I would do.
At any rate, I’m really glad that you’re still doing what you do. I think that “hermit” thing you’ve got going on is part of why you have -time- to actually post a comic -every-single-day-. That’s an amazing feat. Thanks for continuing it I’m 23 years old and continue to enjoy it.
It should have been a date Nicole needs to reach out to other people or she’s going to become sheltered. And she’s the only female character in the “real” world other than Alex’s mom. Alex already has a girlfriend, Dan does not.
Thank you all for reading. And I’m so glad you’re enjoying these pages.
Yes…Alex eventually shows the bag. But first things first. Dan went out with Nicole. MUCH more important.
And thank you guys for reading the article. Please feel free to leave a comment on that site. Let them know that you enjoyed it.
The guys have cool shirts. It would be nice if Nicole had something – ANYTHING – a piece of jewelry, a patterned blouse, cleavage, anything at all to suggest that she is younger than say, 80. Heck, even 80 year old women are more attentive to their appearance than Nicole.
yes, I did notice the ugly post earrings. They look more like a medical device than jewelry.
I’m confident that Alex will show Dan the bag before he goes back to Dreamland, and hopefully Nicole too if she sticks around, a note from her would certainly help Felicty recover. I miss her, and I’d love to hear her commentary on Nastajia’s new outfit.
Right now I think Nicole is just making Dan sweat, which is good because she really needs to loosen up. I know she’s working hard to study and keep her scholarship but still she needs to have some fun.
LOL! Dinner or Date, Dan’s attitude has got him BUSTED!
Said it before, I’ll say it again, Scott! Best interview, ever.
Talk? No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to DIE!!
the thunder cats shirt is think geek to!
come to think of it, there is an ‘Inconeivable!’ shirt on there too!
Busted! I’ve got some advice for you, Danny boy; DO NOT, AND I SAY DO NOT try to change a woman’s mind. You will fail.
@ interview: â€œa fantasy comic that has attracted a large following among teenage girls.â€
Where does this demographic info come from? I don’t remember a survey…
I know many (a little more than 45) who follow The Dreamland Chronicles regularly, and only ONE of them is a teenage girl.
Not broken up about it, but I am one for accurate reporting, and I question the accuracy of the statement.
As usual Scott, I’m loving every bit! Thank you for your dedication to sharing Dreamland with us! 😀
Why teenage girls? Are us boys just dirt? Oh, well I’ll still support Dreamland. Power to hermits, Scott! I am amazed at all the stuff you’ve done before Dreamland man! It just blows my mind! Wow.
I honestly don’t believe that Nicole is just yanking Dan’s chain, I’m sure she’s serious. But given her character development, she will probably believe Dan.
I’m SORRY! SORRY!
I wasn’t saying that ALL of my readers are teenage girls.
I was just saying that this takes up a good amount of my readers…compared ESPECIALLY to regular comics. Which are primarily 20-40 year old men.
I LOVE ALL YOU GUYS. ALL of you.
Just…compared to the Fanboy type comics. We have more girls.
It makes sense to me, Scott. Most comics are read by guys. I’m an odd ball in the fact I’m almost 20, a woman, and I read a LOT of comics.
I’m a teenage girl o/ (why did I have to say that anyway? lol)
I’ve been a bit lost lately and stopped commenting, but I’ve already catched up… So now I can say: Dan and Nicole’s interaction here is PRICELESS xD
Grow a backbone Dan and fess up! Call a spade a spade.
Oh, I think Nicole is yanking Dan’s chain here. And I think she wants him to call a spade a spade. They are so cute!
He DIDN’T say date, so if he admits to doing so, he would be calling a spade a heart.
DO NOT APPOLOGIZE FOR HAVING A FEMALE BASE!!!
As one of the 40 year old dudes that typically make up comics demographics, I am VERY excited that Dreamland Chronicles is something that the REST of my family who are female ages 11, 19 and 39 , can ALL enjoy WITH ME!!!
Keep up the GOOD work Scott.
LAST! i wanted to do something creative.
Tailman: sooo not LAST! (sorry, couldn’t resist…)
A dinner is not a date…especially when Nicole has that glare for you. A dinner is a lot less threatening way to ease into a relationship.
I’m not sure if he can save face in the face of THAT “look.” XDD
dan is wearing an inigo montoya tshirt from thinkgeek??!!!!???? epic win!
