Interview with Tom Dell’Aringa, Creator of Sci-Fi Web Comic Marooned

Palace in the Sky Publishing has an interview with Tom Dell’Aringa, creator of the hilarious online sci-fi comic strip Marooned: A Space Opera in the Wrong Key.

Here’s a brief description of the strip, taken from the interview:
"Marooned concerns the ill-fated first manned mission to Mars sometime in the future. Pilot Captain John and his companion, a Robot AI named Asimov, safely land. However it seems there is not enough fuel to take off again (which quickly gets blamed on John’s piloting abilities). It isn’t long before a curious local named Ugo
finds them and offers some help."

Both the interview and Tom's comic strip are worth reading.
