A wide ranging interview covering stormtroopers and the future of DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR:

Do you see the strip ending in the near future?

I don’t, but people are asking me that all the time now. I don’t know why. Are they seeing something I’m not? Is it getting stale?

I don’t think so, personally.

Well, it’s true that it’s not as financially viable as it would be to devote myself completely to books. It might be a smart thing, actually, but somehow I don’t think so. I feel Dykes is like a steady investment. A municipal bond. It has supported me for many years, not just financially, but as a really great outlet — especially during the Bush administration. I think I would go insane without somewhere to vent this stuff.
