Comic Creators Anonymous – Danny Ferbert

Danny Ferbert has become an all-rounder through producing his Zines as Artist, Writer, Colorist, Letterer, Distributor and more.

What was the first title you worked on?

The first title I worked on I started with a friend in the 5th grade. It was a complete South Park rip off but with our own stories called Yellow Stone Park.

It wasn’t until high school that we actually serializes it online. I did the art and writing and my friend did the outline, the Marvel way!You can still find it on there.

How has your work changed since then?

I’ve learned a lot of tricks and different methods that make it easier. I’ve also gotten a lot more influences and experiences to draw from.

Who are your main influences?

Matt Howarth, Moebius, Akira Toriyama, Brandon Graham, James Stokoe, Corey Lewis to name a few.

What comics are you reading just now?

Currently I think the only thing I’m reading regularly is Corey Lewis’s Sun Bakery. I was reading Island.

What’s the best thing about creating comics?

It’s hearing how much someone enjoyed one of my books. Whenever I’m at a show and someone had bought a book the year before and comes back for more I feel I made something for someone.

What are you working on just now?

I have a Zine I put out called Electric Transit. It’s a compilation of everything I’m currently working on.

I’ve also been working on some artwork for some low budget movies.

Where can we see you next?

You’ll most likely be able to see me at any Zine show around Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas like Paper Cutz in Little Rock, AR.

You can check out Danny’s work over on his Electric Transit website and keep up to date with him over on Twitter too.
