Interview with our reader AmbiValent

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?

> I’m a middle-aged German software developer who likes fantasy, SF, webcomics and animation (both Japanese and other). I’m also following astronomy and politics news.

When you read Sandra and Woo for the first time, what grabbed your attention the most?

> Probably the differences between Sandra, Woo and Richard, yet there was harmony.

Is the thing you mentioned above still your favorite part of the comic, or do you like something else the most now?

> I’m following the relationships between many characters now, and usually find them interesting.

Who is your favorite character and why?

> Sandra. Maybe because she has a dark side, but is usually nice because she likes it.

Do you have a favorite story arc and/or a favorite single strip?

> The abandoned factory arc and the “love sux” strips around #100 (which I like most among them)

You have read Sandra and Woo for many years now. Do you think the comic has changed in any way since the beginning?

> (waves rolling) (whale song) Yes.

Sandra and Woo is sometimes criticized for lacking focus. Is there an aspect of the comic that you’d rather get rid of?

> I guess I’d dislike strips in which the characters lose their individuality and become mere puppets stating the author’s opinion. (Even if it were my opinion as well.) But I’m not even sure that Sandra and Woo was the webcomic where I saw that happen, and it was rare anyway.

Is there a topic you’d like to see getting addressed in a longer story arc?

> This is surprisingly hard to answer since I like the comic’s actions-have-consequences/no-return-to-status-quo-ness. Maybe Sandra and Woo going on a (gaming) campaign with the Williams?

What are your wishes for the future of Sandra and Woo?

> More interesting developments and character growth.

Is there any other webcomic which you’d like to recommend to our readers?

> City of Reality. Oh, it’s on hiatus. The Meek? Too. Hero In Training? No news. But Galaxion should return any day now.

Do you have anything else do say? Here’s room for it:

> I’d like to say a lot, but I think this is the wrong place for it.
