We talk with cartoonist Chip Zdarsky. Fresh off of his latest Eisner win for writing about a burger lovin’ teen, Chip chats about his current work on Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man. Fun and merriment awaits. Chip Zdarsky creates comic books and PERSONAL movies from his home in Toronto, Ontario. For almost 14 years he worked at the National Post newspaper as a columnist, illustrator and Spider-Man under the name Steve Murray. In 2013 he made the jump from the dying print industry to a different dying print industry as a comic-boy, co-creating the award-winning comic Sex Criminals with Matt Fraction. Since then he’s done work for Marvel, Image and Archie, but his true passion is writing bios for webpages. For more on Chip Zdarsky, check out his website.
