Graphic novelist Ariel Schrag has a new web comic, Ariel and Kevin Invade Everything, which she works on with Kevin Seccia. In one recent panel, she and Kevin "Invade the Hike," so we invited Ariel to join us on our own hike to talk about her new project, working on The L Word and why she is so inspired by Beverly Hills, 90210.
AfterEllen.com: Have you ever made out with a celebrity?
AE: That would make a good comic! You think?
AE: How did you meet Kevin? How did the idea for Invade Everything come about?
We thought it would be cool to insert cartoons of ourselves into various movies and TV shows and then that idea expanded into these little episodes of us invading all the various experiences of life. "Ariel and Kevin Invade Comic Con." "Ariel and Kevin Invade Heartbreak." "Ariel and Kevin Invade a Lavish Breakfast." And coming soon: "Ariel and Kevin Invade an L.A. Dyke Club," the night I made Kevin go to the lesbian hellhole that is Booby Trap with me.
AE: Do you think that movie Cocoon is in the public domain? That movie is hella old?
AE: Well ‘cuz I just had an idea — how about "Kevin and Ariel Invade Cocoon," and you could address your three-way energy transference make-out like the pool scene?
