Three If By Murder #3: Justin Pierce
‘Wonderella’ is one of my favourite superhero comics, and now you’re thinking, it’s not a real superhero comic because it’s a parody. Well, in my mind parodies are indistinguishable from the thing they are parodying, just like how ‘Ghostbusters’ is a real film about busting ghosts even though real ghost busters aren’t really as funny because ghosts are kind of a serious subject when you think about it. I mean they are dead people.
Fun fact: I regularly wrote Justin Pierce’s name as ‘Justine Pierce’ while making this because I’m not very good with details like that.
Three If By Murder #4: Cory Mathis
Cory used to work where I work, and now he doesn’t, and then he won the ‘NZ Young Cartoonist Award’ and then he was in Italy but now he is not. Most of his stuff is dinosaur related, so when I asked him to supply me with a question for this project I should have specified no dinosaur questions, but then I didn’t and now it is my fault.
I imagine when it is his birthday everyone is all like, ‘let’s get him some dinosaur stuff because we know he likes dinosaur stuff’ and now he has a whole cabinet of dinosaur memorabilia.
The joke at the end of this video made sense in my head at the time.
