Meet the Participants
We at Bad Soviet Habits ask the hard-hitting questions, and we wanted to know just what kind of (April) fools would take part in something as unseemly as MOTIONARY COMICS. So we went straight the horse’s mouth and we asked.
Jonathan West and Dorothea West. Answers from the father are on the left. Answers from the daughter are on the right, and we hope that if social services come to visit, it’s not as a result of our incisive questionnaire. But not because we doubt that SEVEN YEAR OLDS SAY “WTF.” WHAT KIND OF PARENT ARE YOU, MAN? Now, where did I put the number for social services. What? Is this thing on? I feel like I’ve got Joe Biden’s microphone here.
