Interview: Goldilock Returns (Zuda Winner Adam Lucas)

By - February 23, 2010

In September we talked to Adam Lucas about his webcomic Goldilock, which he’d entered in that month’s competition for a contract with DC Comics’ Zuda online division. And lo and behold, Adam won!

Tomorrow Goldilock returns to Zuda, launching its weekly run that will add 52 more pages to the 8 we already saw during the contest. So we checked up on Adam to see what he’s been up to durign the months in between.

Llama: When you won your Zuda competition, which was the stronger feeling – joy over winning or relief the month was over?

Lucas: Joy. I was doing jump kicks over bushes. Anyone within fifty feet of me knew that I was excited about something… and to steer clear cause they might get a hug from a stranger.

Llama: How did you celebrate?

Lucas: Beer and sleep.

Llama: How have you spent your time between the win and the upcoming launch?

Lucas: Trying to get better at drawing. Visiting family. Got lucky enough to get some pretty cool freelance gigs like doing a few illustrations for the Ninja Assassin DVD and have been trying to get my feet wet in the book cover world as well as some concept art work for film.

Llama: Now that you get to flesh out story events and details that had previously been lurking in your head, how much has your story changed?

Lucas: Surprisingly not much. I’ve changed some character designs and have created a few new characters but story wise all of the major plot points are still intact. As far as details, I am finding out though that even with a script to go from, things still evolve and change once I get into the panels.

Llama: We’ve noticed a lot of Zuda comics where the art changes between page 8 (last page of the contest entry) and page 9 (first of the ongoing run). Are you conscious of making any changes artistically?

Lucas: I feel that I’ve grown more comfortable in my style so hopefully it looks better! Oh, and much less pink. I’ll admit, it got a little out of hand.Zuda-Goldilock-3[1]

Llama: How far ahead do you have this story planned?

Lucas: Right now I believe this could be a tight, fun, two season story. Each season being sixty screens with of course the possibility to do more. Hopefully the public will enjoy this first part enough that I will get to continue it.

Llama: Will we see you at San Diego Comic-Con?

Lucas: Not sure yet but right now I’m signed up for New York.

Llama: So we’ll see you when we see you. Well, have a great year. Thanks for visiting with us again.

Lucas: Thanks again for the opportunity!
