After a busy weekend at San Diego Comic Con 2010, Meltdown Comics hosted the official launch party for Lady Robotika, the comic book created by Jane Wiedlin (guitarist for the legendary Go-Go’s) and Bill Morrison (Eisner Award-winning creative behind The Simpsons and Futurama comics). The book’s protagonist — the lady herself — is the newest superhero of our universe, and Jane Wiedlin took some time to talk about the comic, the music it inspired and the future of the Go-Go’s.
AfterEllen.com: I just got done reading Lady Robotika it was so great amazing! I think you’ve been really into comics for a long time — why did it take you so long to make a comic book yourself?
Bill also introduced me to graphic novels, which I now am obsessed with.
AE: How did you and Bill Morrison meet?
AE: I love how real Lady Robotika felt. When I finished it my first thought was, “That could totally happen.” I could also really hear your voice through it. Could this be classified as autobiographical with a fantasy, sci-fi twist?
