Ron Perazza and Daniel Govar have been making waves in the comic industry for several years now. Perazza started his career working on Marvel trading cards, and eventually became the editorial director for DC’s Zuda Comics imprint. Govar comes more from an animation background, but caught comics’ attention with Azure, published through Zuda. Last year, they launched a new project called Comic Book Think Tank, largely as an avenue for them to explore the notions of webcomics in a very public space. As part of that exploration, they’ve created their own webcomics viewer, Yanapax, which they’re making freely available to anyone. Both Perazza and Govar sat down to talk about how they came to create CBTT, what they’re doing with it, and where they’re going with it. Govar was even kind enough to provide MTV Geek with an exclusive look at some of his art for one of their next stories.
MTV Geek: We’re definitely going to be talking about Comic Book Think Tank here, but I want to start with some background to help put things in perspective for everyone. You’ve both been in comics for a number of years, and have exhibited a clear love of the medium. Can you both share some of your earliest comic experiences? Were you big fans as kids? What were the comics that first really grabbed your attention?
