Interview withMike Maihack of Cow & Buffalo“I usually describe Cow & Buffalo as conversations I have with myself personified by bovines,” says Mike Maihack, creator of the ridiculous weekly online comic strip. “Lately though, they seem to be taking me on these long drawn out story arcs that involve places and other characters I didn’t realize existed. Either this means I’m getting more creative at my craft, or my split personality is multiplying into more then just two. It can’t be that I’m going crazy because that already happened. People can’t go crazier can they?”

Mike ran off clucking like a chicken shortly after this, but informed us that if we needed to compare Cow & Buffalo to a mainstream comic book out there it would be, “Captain America. Definitely.”

Panel 2 Panel news from Glych

A FAQ page has been added to the site
(http://www.panel2panel.com/faq.html) where you’ll find a HUGE list of common questions we get and their answers. Questions like “Whatever happened to the original No Stereotypes?” and “Would you be willing to
collaborate on something?” There’s also a question we often get; “How do I get into the comics industry?” which is followed by a very long and thorough list of books that is an excellent jumping off point for
anyone who’s serious about making comics for a living. We feel this list is an important resource for anyone starting out.

2 new columns have joined the site. There was a vote on the forums to pick the new columnist from 2 worthy candidates, Adam Barnett and Jason Brown. Not only was the vote “so” close but their material
covered so different from each other that Glych made the executive decision to have both join. Adam Barnett, blogger for Comics Make No Sense (http://comicsmakenosense.blogspot.com/) will be covering older comics and graphic novels from the main stream with his column “The Procrastinator,” while Jason Brown will be covering independent and small press comics and graphic novels with his column “Shoegazing.” Jason’s been published in many gaming magazines in the UK which, with his addition, officially makes P2P, not only international, but intercontinental.
