Five Questions with...
Creator J.M. Ringuet

1) On what project are you currently working?

Several work-for hire projects for private clients like "Remnants," "Battery City," and "Vampire Mob" based on the YouTube series, as well as a story for the IDW anthology "Imaginary Drugs." I also do some concept art for games and the few odd illustrations for bands.

2) Whom in your field do you admire most and why?

Mike Mignola. He draws, he writes, he creates his own universe and heís branching out in film and other media. Thatís an achievement. He also has one of the most iconic style in comic.

3) How did you get into the comic book field?

Always wanted to be in, waited for my opportunity, first in doing some coloring, then penciling/inking, and finally writing and drawing my own miniseries "Repossessed." I climbed the ladder step by step, and I guess I didnít go very high yet: very few people know me in the field. I still have a long way to go and a lot of work to do. But I love to tell stories, what better way to do it than comics?

4) On which title would you most like to work and why?

Selfishly that would be one of my own titles. I have a ton of story ideas and Iíd like to do any of them. I just want to put my ideas out there, I want to entertain people, provoke them, make them think a bit. Make them feel something different. I think art is about showing things in a different way. I want to do a bit of that.

5) On what project will you be working next?

While I carry on with my work-for-hire assignments I have also been writing an action/horror story and a near future scifi story in screenplay and comic script format. I hope I can pitch that soon and start making a graphic novel out of one of them. Also there is probably more "Repossessed" coming down the line in some form but itís still under wraps.
