Recently I had the pleasure of exchanging a few e-mails with Tim, the creative mind being Ctrl-Alt-Del. The review of the comic can be found here
Apollo: The “webcomics for geeks” genre is quite large, do you have any comics in the genre that you like (other than yours of course )?
Tim: Unfortunately over the years my once large comic reading list has dwindled down to nothing. I do still check in on VGcats every couple of months, but Scott rarely updates anymore.
Apollo: My favorite character by far has to be the X-bot. How did you come up with the concept?
Tim: I like robots, and I wanted to have a robot sidekick in the comic strip. Building him out of an Xbox just seemed like a natural progression.
Apollo: For those who haven’t read the comic, how would you describe the Winter-een-mas celebrations?
Tim: It’s a time of the year for gamers as a group to take a moment and remember what we love about this hobby so much, and to celebrate that with each other by scheduling LAN parties and online game matches.
Apollo Which of the characters do you think you’re most like?
Tim: There’s a piece of me in every character. They’re different shards of my personality, exaggerated.
Apollo: What do you find to be the hardest part of creating the comic?
Tim: The hardest part for me is taking some of the larger stories and breaking them down into updates 3-times a week. Most often I’d rather get completed start to finish, and then release them all at once. But the update schedule needs to be maintained, which makes that difficult.
Apollo: How far into the future do you normally write/plan the comic?
Tim: It depends. I’m always thinking about stuff further down the road, but a lot of my ideas are spur of the moment as well.
Apollo: Any parting words you have for the potential readers?
Tim: I hope they have as much fun reading it as I do creating it
