Richard Fairgray has been making comics since he was a little kid, rose to became one of the biggest names on the New Zealand comic scene, and published over 200 comics all over the world.

When I found all this information, I was blown away, because I only knew him from his book Blastasaurus published by Golden Apple Books. He's produced a little bit of everything in just about every genre, and recently expanded into children's books as well.

Not only has he had a long career, but a prolific one as well. He churns out finished pages like Kirby in his prime. He tells a story on the show about how he produced a 180-page book in three months.

I am astounded by the level of dedication Richard has to comics, and I can't wait for you to hear from him.
