Ricky is a comic book writer based in Ontario. He self-published the comic book series Black Hole Hunters Club and Deep Sea. His most recent graphic novel is Happily Ever Aftr. I spoke recently with Ricky at a Toronto comic convention about his Undergrowth graphic novel plus his work on the spring issue of CAULDRON.
During our chat, Ricky talked about the exhibit ‘For A Social Cause’ and what his graphic novel Happily Ever Aftr with Nicholas Londeix adds to the display at the museum. He also talked about what it means to him to have his work shown in an art gallery. Ricky also spoke about his newest project created in conjunction with PAMA.
