Five Questions with... 
Creator Dan Morgan

1) What project are you currently working on?
The usual, full-time work and I’m just finishing up a master’s degree… oh you mean the comic book stuff? That would be my web comic "Enemy Agency," which has been described as “Dilbert in the Dungeon”. For what was originally conceived as a side project, it certainly seems to be taking up a lot of space right up the front.

2) Who in your field do you admire most and why?
That’s a tough question, as I read and admire a LOT of comic creators. I’m far more of a writer than an artist myself, so I like some of the big names in character driven story telling… Robert Kirkman, Garth Ennis, Peter Milligan are a few faves. Who I admire though are the little guys that just keep on relentlessly pumping out content for little to no reward, just because they love the medium and the creative process. I’m talking about you, my fellow
Webcomic Underdogs

3) How did you get into the comic book field?
I’ve spiritually been in the field all my life… It just took me close to 40 years to take the plunge into creating my own work; it’s pretty mild as far as midlife crises go. I remember reading Chris Claremont’s earlier run on "X-Men" (before Marvel’s “Imageification” in the 90s) and just knew that creating comics is what I wanted to do. The great thing these days is you can just plonk yourself down on your own site and start producing comics with complete creative control.

4) Which title would you most like to work on and why?
Probably "Garfield," as I already know all four of the jokes I’d need to use. Possibly "Wolverine"… but I suspect that reverting Wolvie back to the hairy macho bastard of yesteryear would be unpopular with a newer audience. Maybe I’ll just stay on my own web site where it is safe…

5) What project will you be working on next?
"Enemy Agency"
takes up a big slab of my time, and I see the whole story taking at least a few years to tell. I’ve got a few creative irons in the fire though, mostly collaborations with some very talented individuals. I might even have a bash at some game design…
