[Video Interview] “Pants Optional” – Episode IX: David Pepose of THE O.Z. #1 ~ Now on Kickstarter!

“Pants Optional” is a new Zoom video interview feature where we connect with individuals within the comic book community. It’s a way to see/hear what creators have been doing during a quarantine, projects which may be in motion during this downtime, and noteworthy events and happenings taking place in lieu of conventions, appearances, and the weekly NCBD grind.

For Episode IX, we have a Kickstarter Spotlight Edition! I spoke with multiple Ringo-nominated writer David Pepose – writer for Action Lab Entertainment‘s SPENCER & LOCKE, SPENCER & LOCKE 2, and GOING TO THE CHAPEL. David was our guest on Episode I and now he’s BACK with a creator-owned project he is releasing on Kickstarter.

So sit back and enjoy as we speak all things THE O.Z. (formerly codename Project Saffron), the incredible creative team assembled (Ruben Rojas, Whitney Cogar, DC Hopkins), and why David chose crowdfunding to get this story out.

Special thanks to David Pepose for taking the time to speak with us. Be sure to follow David and his titles online (links below), and definitely check out and back THE O.Z. #1!
