The Great Curve: Q&A with Joshua Hale Fialkov:

Throw a rock across the internet and you can't help but hit a great review of Elk's Run, the 'down home' militia/cult comic by Joshua Hale Fialkov, Noel Tuazon, and Scott A. Keating. Joshua answered a few questions for us about his comics career so far and Elk's Run, which recently moved to Speakeasy Comics.-- JK: Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you got into comics?

Joshua: Well, I've been writing since I was a kid. I started out as a playwright, directing my own work from the time I was 16. I went to college for theater and film, and have a B.F.A. in Writing and Directing for the Stage and Screen. When I was graduating from school, a buddy and I wrote a pilot for a TV show and started shopping it around. To everybody's surprise, we found a producer and went into pre-production. After Sept. 11, 2001, our producer was personally devastated by tragedy -- he lost a lot of close friends, and narrowly escaped dying himself -- and the project fell apart. We'd already relocated out to L.A. and found ourselves struggling to find a way to get our creative voices heard. I wrote a few more specs, both for film and TV, and was getting painfully frustrated with writing to no actual end. My whole life I’d been a fan of comics, and suddenly, it just seemed like it was a medium I'd like to try my hand at.
