Baltimore 2010 Interview with Richard Starkings
In a 28 year career Richard Starking has accomplished a lot. I mean a lot. His extensive body of work is simply mind boggling He’s worked on pretty much everything in the industry - too much to list, really, just watch the video!
What in the Hell is Tales of the Rugged Reptile? I’ve got to check that book out!
I don’t know why, but I want to go exploring the rainforests of South America with him. I don’t know, he just gives off that kind of “Lets go exploring the rainforests of South America” vibe, you know?
Richard Talks about Dave Sim and his influence on his work.
He used to mail order the Cerebus book when he was living in Manchester. On the CeTV program Dave Sim holds up a copy of the Barry Windsor Smith cover as Richard mentions it.
Richard took the Letters from the President column to heart. He’s the owner of his stories and characters from Hip Flask and Elephantmen.
After this Interview - I was able to cobble together enough of a correspondence with him and Dave sim through complicated faxes and schedules and Emails and Intant Messages to the final point where yes - Dave Sim did do an Elephantmen cover. It only took two years but it did get done!
I’d say you could see the Richard Starkings Interview over at CeTV - but you can’t because we only run them for a week there. So thank God for Behind the Panels, huh? Huh!? RICHARD'S WEBSITE!!!
