Hey I was on a podcast talking with a couple other webcomic authors about A*! They were Roy Duncan and Jay Bradley, and it was their webcomic podcast Villainland.
*cue Nixon accent* "I am *not* a villain!"
It was fun! Thanks to Roy and Jay for having me and being nice about A* and asking lots of questions and letting me ramble on and on, telling stories about lawyers fleeing to Mexico and how I ended up as the "lead" designer on a high-profile MMO (those two stories are not directly connected >_>). I even gave out some minor A* teasers/spoilers. It's all in the hour-long Villainland episode 31, and you can listen in or download it on the show's page (the link above), but you do have to register (free) with the site first and certify that you're 18 or older--because younger people aren't allowed to have fun, I guess?
Roy and Jay have comics on Drunk Duck--Villain Next Door and Danielle Dark, respectively--which have both been running for years and are quite well done; same goes for Putrid Meat by Deidre "Pit Face" Crouch, who was on-hand providing moral support and Skittles.
