6 Questions with Javis Ray Creator Of Legacy Control
Much like I am Arg! I came upon Legacy Control about 4 months ago. Its humor and art style was everything that I love about the web comic strip medium. After reading every new comic from the writer/artist Javis Ray I think “Shit that was brilliant, why couldn’t I think of that?” I’ll also allow his answer for the final question since nobody can beat a Super Saiyan.
LC: I had wanted to do traditional comics since I could hold a pencil, which happened to coincide with when scantily clad comic heroines started to make my wee wee tingle. I grew up, went to art school, and realized I didn’t have the attention span to do long form stuff, or for the meticulous detail traditional comics oft have. I naturally migrated towards cartooning, and traditional syndicated strips. Once I learned how few strips actually become syndicated, I pretty much gave in to the fact that I was going to be a graphic designer. I am embarrassed to say, I only found Penny Arcade 5 years ago, and didn’t even realized that webcomics was an option. So about 2 years ago (a little more) I started working on getting Legacy Control crackin’. I finished 40 strips before I launched, and they all hit the web at once on April 25th 2010.
The OG: Who inspires you to draw your comics and include Princess Peach in bondage attire?
The OG: What’s your favorite kind of comic to write about? Video games, life, movies…etc.
LC: Immediately after I finish soiling myself and shamelessly begging for my life in exchange for fellatio, I would say, art. Though, I am really starting to sense a shift to writing as of late (in that I want to get batter at it). It really depends on the day.
LC: Legacy Control…is like one of my kids. I love it dearly. I don’t think there will ever be a time that I wont be doing Legacy Control in some form. My goal..is THE goal. I want to draw Legacy Control for my job. All day, everyday…create Legacy Control. Thats not too much to ask is it? I really do think there is more than enough room in the webcomic world for everyone. The internet is such a big place, its just a matter of finding your audience.
The OG: Who wins in a battle to the death? Wolverine or your character in Skyrim?
LC: As a parent of two ferocious killing machines (children)…my gaming core has softened substantially, so my character in Skyrim isn’t too tough. I am only like a level 25. So Wolverine…but if there were a third option, I would pick Goku.
