Driving towards the Bee and PuppyCat launch on Cartoon Hangover on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 8p EST, we thought fans would like to know more about the many people working to bring Bee and PuppyCat to life.

Garrett Jackson is a co-writer for Cartoon Hangover’s Bee and PuppyCat comic books from Boom! Studios. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, drawing and reading comics like Calvin & Hobbes, Jackson now lives in Burbank. In addition to his Bee and PuppyCat work, he is the creator of “Oh Shit, Monsters” and the journal comic “My [adjective] life.” Garrett has a great laugh and happily answered some questions for us about working on the Bee and PuppyCat comics from Boom! and then some! So, if you’ve been wondering what kind of junk food he and creator Natasha Allegri eat while brainstorming, you’ve come to the right place. (The image above is #01 Cover A, one of three covers from the first Bee and PuppyCat comic, co-written by Garrett and Natasha)

Frederator Times: When did you start drawing and creating your own ideas and animations?

Garrett: I’ve been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I even used to sneak out to my dad’s office and steal his Post-It note stacks to make flip books.

How’d you get from flip books to what you do now?

I’d been making my own hand-drawn short films for quite a while, but when I moved down to Burbank in 2010 I met the harsh reality that not a whole lot of traditional animation takes place in America anymore. I wasn’t about to give up though (because I lack any other skills to survive in a non-creative job, yikes) and came to the conclusion that even 3D movies and shows start out as 2D drawings.

I got involved with storyboarding, because I’ve made my own comics since forever, and then discovered animatic editing - it was much less time consuming than making fully- animated shorts but still got the ideas out there and I have a lot of fun doing it.

So, even now, after spending most of the past 29 years drawing comics and cartoons, I’m still finding new things to learn and enjoy. I can’t really imagine doing anything else!

How did you get involved in Bee and PuppyCat?

After knowing Natasha for several years, we were hanging out one day and she brought up the PuppyCat Kickstarter. She said that they (Boom! Studios) wanted to make a Bee and PuppyCat comic and asked if I’d write it with her. I was a little dumbfounded as to why she chose me, but she’d seen my online shorts and read my webcomics and concluded that I was a good pick to help her.

Working as a co-writer for the comic book, how do you interact with the series production staff to create your stories?

The team for the series is filled with incredibly wonderful and friendly people.

Before the comic was officially announced I sat in on a couple of meetings with the show’s writers (Frank Gibson and Maddy Flores) to try and get a better understanding for the world and stories they wanted to tell. As things got under way on the comic, I deal mainly with Natasha, since she’s the creator and has the whole series bible in her head.

When you’re writing Bee and PuppyCat comics, are there any comic books or animated series/characters that influence you?

Natasha likens it to the journal comics I make, little slice of life stories. Of course there are huge Sailor Moon influences, but I don’t really “write” my journal comics so much as they are just retellings of events or conversations that have actually taken place.

So, any inspiration I draw on for PuppyCat comes from my own life, because who hasn’t locked themselves out of their apartment at 3am and then had to walk 6 miles to and from a friend’s house to borrow a screwdriver to try and break back in through your window? Right? So that’s where Bee locking herself out of her house in Issue 1 comes from!

Has Natasha spoken to you about any of her influences for the Bee and PuppyCat series or comics?

I mean, there’s the huge Magical Girl anime influence running through the veins of Bee and PuppyCat, but I don’t remember her ever saying, “You know such-and-such show? Let’s aim for something like that,” when we sit down to bounce ideas around.

I think it’s a little bit of everything. Because I know Natasha really likes “slice of life” stories, characters are just going through their day and not always facing off against some insurmountable foe.

When I first started writing the comic with her I kept trying to come up with plots for the temp jobs first and foremost, thinking that was going to be the focus of things. But actually, Natasha really wanted the main focus to just be on Bee’s life, with the jobs she takes being more of a means to an end for her to be able to eat and pay rent. I also thought that she’d be fighting monsters or going on adventures for each of her temp jobs, but we see that is not the case in Issue 2 of the comic.

There’s also something really fun about transformation sequences and magical paraphernalia and crazy costumes. Bee gets a new outfit for every job that she takes and we’ve all had a pretty good time coming up with those!

What was your favorite comic book as a kid?

Truthfully, even though I loved making my own comics I never really read that many comic books as a kid. I would probably have to say Calvin & Hobbes, since I had all the collections of those, but I’m not sure if they could as a typical “comic book”? If we’re talking traditional comic books, I’ve always loved Spider-Man and currently Ultimate Spider-Man, Ghostbusters, and Herobear and the Kid are my favorite comics.

Everyone has their own work habits or things you like to do or have around to work - what, if any, are yours?

JUNK FOOD!

When working with Natasha, we’ll grab chicken wings or Popeye’s or order a pizza, get a bunch of candy or ice cream and watch terrible reality TV while we toss ideas back and forth.

If I’m writing by myself and eating, I’d say cookies and a tall glass of milk, or sometimes a giant bowl of ramen noodles. Or pizza poppers. Maybe just “food” in general? Whatever is near me? I’m eating pizza poppers right now while I write this.

Thanks Garrett!
