What’s up everybody! Welcome to a very special series you’ll only get to see here on The Beat. We’re a couple of days away from Dark Horse publishing the enigmatic Chuck Palahniuk’s new collection of short stories/adult coloring book, Bait: Off-color Stories for you to Color. To count down, we’ve got reader’s digest style questionnaires answered by some of the artists who worked on the book. It all leads up to a very special interview with author Chuck Palahniuk on Tuesday.
Today, we’ve got an incredible artist CURRENTLY known mostly to fans of small press comics. Alise Gluskova has drawn books like Letter 44 and Abe Sapien. Her style lands somewhere between the finesse of a Fiona Staples and the emotional impact of Terry Moore. She brings her talents to Bait’s most morbidly romantic story and she’s cool enough to take part in my flamming garbage truck of an experiment.
COMICS BEAT: What was your first experience with Chuck Palahniuk’s work?
I personally enjoyed “Invisible Monsters” one of my first novels I read by Palahniuk and [the] recently published Fight Club 2.
CB: I think those are the first three words Chuck types for any story.
Where does being a part of a large prose collaboration like Bait rank for you?
you give average readers who are going to color your work in this book?
to fight each other and who wins?
Finally, Do you have a favorite memory of coloring or coloring books?
