I am one of those that has an unerring sense of direction and timing. Unfortunately about the only direction it works on anymore is up and that is best when I am flat on my back and the sense of timing best detects bad timing and that is usually after the fact.
So after wandering around downtown Hamiton, asking numerous folks for directions, and such, I finally saw someone wearing Joker makeup and knew I had arrived at Mike Gagnon‘s Hammer Studio… Just as everyone was leaving.
From what I had read, they were having bands in the evening so I figured I couldn’t have that bad of timing.
As it happens they were having a daytime Grand Opening and an evening Grand Opening and I got their just in time for Intermission (aka run home and get a shower and more stuff for the evening.)
Fortunately Mike took pity on me and gave me a bit of his precious time and took me down into the sanctum sanctorum of Hammer Studios where he works and has his Dr. Who Stand-up collection.
Mike has had a love for comics since his mom gave him his first Superman comic when he was five and has been writing and drawing his own comics ever since then.
Mike writes, illustrates and colors his own works and for other lines including the Marvel Classics. His most recent personal release is The Almighties #1 but the one I am most looking forward to with baited breath is The Island of Dr. Morose which is a take off on The Island of Dr. Moreau using zombies!
Mike recently had an Indiegogo to raise money for his Grand Opening and one of the perks for contributing was a cameo as a zombie in The Island of Dr. Morose (which I immediately snagged for myself) but enough from me. Check out the interview I did with Mike!
