    CREATURE COPS Creator Rob Anderson Takes a Walk on the Cosmic Treadmill at FORCES OF GEEK

    Back in July, IDW Publishing and online comic book college Comics Experience penned a deal to publish creator owned books.

    The first of these is Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit by Rob Anderson.



    Rob joins us today to talk about the hybrid critters in the book and the cops that wrangle with them!

    FOG!: Rob, thanks for joining us! Tell us about Comics Experience & IDW’s publishing collaboration, Creature Cops! Are you the first book?

    Rob Anderson: Creature Cops is, indeed, the first book coming out of the recently announced publishing alliance between IDW and Comics Experience. I’m pretty excited to be first out of the gate.

    Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit is about animal control officers in a near-future world similar to our own, where gene-spliced animals are commonplace.

    It’s an ensemble-style police drama, where the animal cops just happen to be dealing with panda dogs, gator-snakes…and griffins!

    Comics Experience is an educational company and runs an online community for comic book creators called the Creators Workshop.

    I developed Creature Cops in CE courses and the Workshop, and all the creator-owned books IDW/CE will be published are coming out of that “talent incubator” (as CE founder Andy Schmidt likes to call it).
