Matt and Jenni Holm interviewed at Newsarama.com

An interview that Jenni and I did with Zack Smith at Newsarama.com is now up! We talk about our process and Babymouse's origins, and also get a bit more in-depth regarding our comics influences. We also talk about the upcoming book, and its influences:


NRAMA: And you just had the latest Babymouse come out...

MH: Yeah, Babymouse: Monster Mash. It’s a Halloween-themed, and there is no pink, all in orange and black! It’s been very exciting, and kids have really been into it. And boys like it, because they tell us they enjoy the series, but feel weird about picking up a pink book. (laughs)

And then we have Babymouse: The Musical, which is of course a takeoff on High School Musical and that whole craze. It’s a spoofing every big musical ever, because Jenny grew up in the age of Broadway musicals, and our house was full of Annie and Cats...

JH: We gave little recitals from Grease in the living room.
