Interview with our reader Petah-Petah
Here is a new interview about Sandra and Woo with one of the Sandra and Woo fans that received a poster package, our reader
Can you please introduce yourself to our readers?
> My name is Peter, I’m 23 years old, and I live in the Netherlands. I have several hobbies, such as playing games, cycling, browsing the internet and swimming.
When you read Sandra and Woo for the first time, what grabbed your attention the most?
> I’ve been reading the comic early 2009, so what grabbed my attention is kinda hazy, but I think the art style was definitely the biggest into why I’m reading it. It also helped that the relation between Sandra and Woo as owner and pet was pretty nice.
Is the thing you mentioned above still your favorite part of the comic, or do you like something else the most now?
> The art style is definitely still at the top. The interaction between Sandra and Woo has somewhat fallen a bit, though.
Who is your favorite character and why?
> Cloud, especially in the beginning, was so cool. Being able to take down bullies much bigger than him made him pretty awesome in my book. In the recent years, I’m gonna have to give it to Seeoahtlahmakaskay, mainly since she reminds me of Okami’s main hero, Ameterasu.
Do you have a favorite story arc and/or a favorite single strip?
> The A.R.T. arc. Especially that one comic where Larissa’s dad gets even with her. I also like the comics where Cloud’s parents were playing with MLP toys, if only because I’m a fairly big <em>Friendship is Magic</em> fan.
You have read Sandra and Woo for many years now. Do you think the comic has changed in any way since the beginning?
> The art has gotten better. Also, Sandra seems to be interacting more with other characters than she does with Woo.
Sandra and Woo is sometimes criticized for lacking focus. Is there an aspect of the comic that you’d rather get rid of?
> You tend to make incredibly long arcs. Not that you should get rid of the storylines, but I would like to see them shorter. The most recent one, for instance, with Butterfly sending the special one, took four months to complete, and mostly focused on a character I wasn’t very interested in.
Is there a topic you’d like to see getting addressed in a longer story arc?
> I’m afraid I can’t really think of anything. Perhaps a day in the life of Seeoahtlahmakaskay?
What are your wishes for the future of Sandra and Woo?
> You seem to be doing pretty fine with Sandra and Woo. Just keep doing what you do best and never stop improving.
Is there any other webcomic which you’d like to recommend to our readers?
> Soul Symphony is done by a friend of mine. It’s about a girl who has to save her fellow students from their internal struggles by fighting them in their souls, using the power of music. Other comics I’m also a big fan of are Awkward Zombie, Brawl in the Family, Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and Poppy O’Possum.
Do you have anything else do say? Here’s room for it:
> To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to be getting any posters at all anymore. But holy crap, Novil, that tube contains a whole lot more than I was expecting. My favorite posters are on there too, so those will definitely get a spot on my wall somewhere.
