• Do you have budgies?
  • Yes!  I have quite a few.  I also had a few as pets when I was little.

 

  • Where did you get the idea for this comic?
  • When I was about 10, I drew a couple of comic books about a war on the planet Cage between anthropomorphized budgies and alien-invader cats.  I was spending a lot of time around then watching old WWII movies and the comics were simply re-envisionings of those movies (particularly Midway, Battleground, and The Longest Day).  When coming up with this comic, I didn’t think that that concept could sustain a long-term comic; however the Cat War may still come up during some of Rex’s fantasies (as it does in the introduction).

 

  • Why are some comics surrounded by millet while others are not?
  • Millet comics are fantasies or dreams happening inside of Rex’s head.

 

  • Why does Rex have more head markings in the real world than he does in his fantasies?
  • Young budgies usually have forehead bars that recede as they mature.  Rex is rather young and is imagining himself as an adult.

 

  • Why does your drawing suck?
  • Because I suck at drawing.
