ICU had the opportunity to talk with Matt Burke about his comic now In Demand on Indiegogo
Your comic, Butch Cleaver is In Demand on Indiegogo. What is Butch Cleaver?
BUTCH CLEAVER is a Gothic-Fantasy-Horror-Western about a brutal butcher who is killed and then resurrected by a Voodoo hex that gives Butch the power to control and weaponize bone. On his path of resurrection Butch searches for the person or person's responsible for killing him while a bounty hunter is on his trail and a constant guide that keeps trying to train him and give him advice Butch sure has his phalanges full.
As to how you get to Oubliette.. it's a mystery and may be explained in future installments of BUTCH CLEAVER. But at it's core Oubliette is a godforsaken-cursed-ghost town. As a creator you try to walk the line of originality, world-building, exposition, info dump and a solid meat and potato's story and it's challenging if you only plan on putting out one 50 page book a year while still leaving the backer hungry for the next installment.
Does Butch have a rogue's gallery?
Yes a massive rogue's gallery. I am a big fan of BATMAN, SPIDER-MAN and TMNT and I believe they have the best rouges. I was inspired by the film Gangs of New York and Miller's Sin City so you will see the introduction of a few of the gangs in this first book too. Some of his rogues are Whitey(The White Rat) Rattatouille, The Voodoo Doll, Mothmammon, Oppie the'Ol Opossum, Raw Meat Ren and several more...
Butch Cleaver has successfully reached it's initial funding goal, so does that mean we can expect more Butch Cleaver in the future?
Hell.......Yeah! I'm halfway done with BUTCH CLEAVER 2 and I have about 10 other I.P.'s I have cooking up in my head that hopefully will come to life one day.
