The long-awaited second annual graphic novel week is here! Each day we’ll be interviewing a different graphic novel writer, artist or team.
Today: Dave Davenport – author of “Feral and the Ghost Skater”, will join us at Noon Pacific:
My comics I am most known for is called “Feral and the Ghost Skater”, it’s an erotic horror story. Originally it was about a gay werewolf that falls for the ghost of a dead skateboarder, but in the second story a character who was the lover of the skater when he was alive came into the story, and eventually became the main character, though it focuses on the trio and their lives.
The stories started out in the anthology “Hard to Swallow comics” which was the baby of me and Justin Hall. After we wrapped that anthology up, I graduated the stories to full color, and more longform stories. I am currently working on a graphic novel called “stray bullet”, which I won the 2015 Prism comics queer press grant with. I am wrapping up a chapter of it on my Patreon page, and will be posting each page there, one page a week (https://www.patreon.com/dogspunk).
Stray Bullet was inspired by “the experimental cure” by Brad Parker, which was a fun thought about lycanthropy being a cure for aids. My story explores this further, involving werewolves, ghosts, skateboarders, the tribal spirits of the wolf and coyote, a dragon, a handful of healthcare workers, a gay paradise in the afterlife, a puppy party, some moral quandries, some hot sex, and I hope a lot of fun.
