April 28,2011 - Mark Andrew Smith lives and teaches English in Taiwain, but over the past few years he's amassed a number of credits and accolades in the comics industry. He co-created the Eisner Award winning Popgun anthology series and developed a number of creator-owned works through Image Comics. 2011 sees the debut of a new all-ages ongoing called Gladstone's School for World Conquerors as well as a second volume of his celebrated New Brighton Archaeological Society. Mark talks to us about the perils and pitfalls of producing all-ages work and discusses both failures and successes in crowdsourcing through Kickstarter.
