Interview by Troy-Jeffrey Allen
Over the last few months, Get Graphic has introduced you to the creative roster behind G.H.O.S.T. Agents, writer Rocko Jerome's wild psychedelic, spy fiction anthology. Jerome is supported by an impressive line-up of artistic talents. From Adam Lemnah and Sam J. Royale to Chris Anderson and Ben Perkins.
Now, we go back to the beginning with G.H.O.S.T. Agents: Man of Action. Conceptualized back in 2020, this particular adventure was intended to be the first! A series of scheduling conflicts prevented that from happening, but it paved the way for the other spy-fi exploits that followed. Now, however, it is that stories turn in the spotlight.
Below, artist Craig CK takes PREVIEWsworld through the top secret GHOST Agents dossier and introduces us to Max Almond, MAN OF ACTION.
For your eyes only…
Firstly, who are you and where do you hail from?
Craig Ck from just outside Toronto.
How did you get into comic books as a fan?
Always loved comics, my first real love was and still is Archie comics. And then mostly '80s marvel and Batman comics.
How did you get into comic books as a professional?
I’m not a comics professional, I’m a tattoo artist who owns and operates 3 shops, I make comics 'cause I love them.
Tell us about your story in G.H.O.S.T. Agents. What’s it about?
My GHOST Agents story is a stand-alone book.
Rocko laid this on me in the first weeks of the pandemic [while we were] making Image Grand Design. We wanted to make a serialized comic strip with these stories. I think I was the first person to hear about this story.
What tools do you use to create?
My time is so short, so I'm mainly a digital artist, as it saves me a ton of time.
What’s next for you?
I will be releasing a fanfic comic based on Murder She Wrote called Murder She Wrought. It'll be released through Cosmic Lion Publishing and Zinc Studios.
