Q: What is this all about?
A: Frik is an unemployed medieval warrior who has to get a job at a medieval fast food restaurant. (Yes, it’s a comedy.) Please read Episode #1 on the SAMPLES page because it sets up the story as this is a linear storytelling comic. He also has a lot of adventures outside of the restaurant, like fighting ninjas and goblins, so it’s not all about food!
Q: What is the age range for your comic?
A: It’s designed for 10+. There’s no blood in it and only one cuss word throughout the entire thing. The humor is more on the adult side, however, so this comic really appeals to a broad range of people!
Q: Why is there no blood in it?!?
A: Because this comic is a comedy, and I don’t believe in gratuitously adding it when there isn’t a reason to have it.
Q: Hey didn’t you have a lot more episodes on this site?
A: I’ve been creating Frik since 2010, and I’ve given a lot to the public during that time. Towards the beginning of 2013 I shifted my business model and removed all the episodes from the site so I can concentrate on selling my books online and at comic conventions. Future episodes will have a short life on the site, before going away as well.
Q: Do you plan to make more episodes?
A: Short answer: Yes. Long answer, after three years working on Frik, I have shifted gears a bit and am currently developing a non-Frik comic. Once I complete that then I will switch back to Frik. I already have ideas for the next two volumes, so please stay tuned!
Q: Do you plan to go to comic conventions to promote your comic?
A: Absolutely, check my APPEARANCES page!
Q: I met you at a convention, you seem shorter than I imagined.
A: Next time I’ll stand up, chairs have a tendency to do that.
Q: Do you have any photos of past conventions you’ve participated at?
A: Yes, on the APPEARANCES page!
Q: Do you sell any merchandise?
A: Yes! Check out the STORE!
Q: How is this comic made?
A: A little old tech and a little new tech. I write the scripts in a notebook, sketch each episode using paper/pencil, then scan it into my computer to use Adobe Illustrator to “ink/color” the comic into vector graphics.
Q: Do you do this for a living?
A: I wish! My full time job is being a stay at home dad to my son, and he doesn’t pay me a dime, lol. (if only…)
Q: What can I do to help?
A: The biggest thing you can do is get the word out. Send this site to all your friends, family and clergy! (well, maybe not the last part, unless they’re into this sort of thing.) Join this comic’s Facebook Fan Page and Twitter page for updates and other miscellaneous nonsense.
Q: Your comic is… (cool, different, unique, odd, stupid, dumb, sucky, ugly, idiotic, etc)
A: Well that’s not really a question but you’re right (depending on which choice you picked from the list.) This isn’t a “mainstream” comic, so peoples reactions have varied greatly from good to bad. All I can ask is give it a chance, read it all the way through before you make a decision. I know this comic isn’t for everyone so I’m (mostly) good with it if you hate it, just as long as you’re mature about how you tell me how much you hate it.
Q: You seem bitter.
A: No, this is how I usually am.
