Interview with our reader Greenwood Goat
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?
> Hi, I’m the Greenwood Goat, and I live in Southeastern England, mingling effortlessly with the many other creatures who also live here.
When you read Sandra and Woo for the first time, what grabbed your attention the most?
> Hang on… that was back in February 2009… The overwhelming cuteness and clever gags.
Is the thing you mentioned above still your favorite part of the comic, or do you like something else the most now?
> Yes, really. The characterizations are still cute and the gags are still clever. However, I do also think the comment system is a good one, and the strips often inspire me to have fun using it. As you’ve probably noticed. >:=)>
Who is your favorite character and why?
> I don’t think I can name anyone at present. I think Larisa is spying on me, and she’ll only use my answer to cause trouble in-story.
Do you have a favorite story arc and/or a favorite single strip?
> Same answer. Perhaps I’m just being overcautious, but she is a decidedly tricky little Miss. >:=/>
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 style has evolved, as is inevitable. The characters seem to have advanced in age a little. Et cetera. It’s all good!
Sandra and Woo is sometimes criticized for lacking focus. Is there an aspect of the comic that you’d rather get rid of?
> No. … Well, maybe stay away from static footage of sauce bottles… >:=)>
Is there a topic you’d like to see getting addressed in a longer story arc?
> Sandra et al getting transformed into various animals or acquiring animal features, possibly in a dream sequence, or possibly through the powers of the animal deities. Hang on, is that the sort of “topic” you were thinking of? If not… how about the plight of the wolves?
Wolf: Please! Save us from this crazy pine squirrel!! *whimper* It’s not fair!
What are your wishes for the future of Sandra and Woo?
> That it extend as far as it can!
Is there any other webcomic which you’d like to recommend to our readers?
> Good question… and one day I’ll get around to doing a list which I can post when it comes up. However, here is a webcomic that doesn’t usually get promoted outside deviantART, where it resides, but unlike the majority of such comics is frequently updated and has an archive of over a thousand pages (yep, full pages, folks). It is Addictive Science by Johann “Cervelet” Karpp, which starts in the sub-gallery that I’ve linked to, and continues in Cervelet’s main gallery (start at the oldest page and work back). Consisting of self-contained shorts with ongoing continuity, it centers around Celia (a mad scientist who specializes in wholesale transformation) and Lukas (her stoical artist roommate and main test subject). No schedule, but updates frequently. Rated U.
Oh, and Kaspall by Lucy Lyall, which may in fact be moving toward a conclusion now… an atmospheric and intricately-written supernatural mystery thriller, taking place in the eponymous domain of Kaspall, where magic and accidental travelers between worlds are all part of life. Lots of humor, though, and not of the pun/gag variety. Full page format, black and white line/hatch, rated PG-13 occasional cursing/conflict/blood/minor horror), read it carefully… and at least twice.
Do you have anything else do say? Here’s room for it:
> As I said in my reply to Oliver’s first email, I am blown away by his generous response to what basically amounts to me showing off and having fun in the comments section here, and will carry on doing more of the same! >:=)>
