This episode was the first one we shot, and probably my favorite one so far! I really love working with Wes, he’s got such great comic timing and is so fun to banter back and forth with! I promise I don’t hate him as much as my character seems to ;)
In this episode, Ben (Wes Robertson) breaks the air conditioning on the hottest day of the year. Hilarity ensues, including a human taun-taun.
Working on a show like this always has its challenges. We were shooting in a real comic book store, so in order to accommodate the real customers, we had to shoot entirely at night. Essentially, every episode you see is fueled by Red Bull. The advantage is that we’re in a real freakin comic book store! There’s almost always a decent amount of downtime for the actors as production resets shots or changes camera angles. One thing we never were was bored. Damion and Wes are the real deal when it comes to being comic book fans, so I simply ask them what I should read next. Thanks to them, I’m now anxiously awaiting the latest installment of Brian K Vaughan’s “Saga”. It’s a brilliant series and extremely well drawn by Fiona Staples.
