Interview with a Zenescope Creative – Holiday Edition

This week we have Tales From Oz writer Jeff Massey answer our fun Holiday Questionnaire!

  • What is on your holiday wish list this year?

    Sleep would be nice.

  • What is the best holiday gift you ever received?

    I should say “my children” or “true love,” but if I’m entirely honest, it was the Dungeon Master’s Guide (1st Edition).  I was in elementary school, my favorite uncle gave it to me, I was lost in study for the rest of the day.  I’ve pretty much DM’ed my way through life ever since.

  • Do you have a favorite Christmas / Holiday movie?

    My brother and I make every effort to watch We’re No Angels together every year.  Not the crappy ‘80s film with De Niro and Sean Penn—but the original 1955 classic with Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov, and Aldo Ray.  Amazing dark comedy about three convicts (and their pet snake, Adolph) who escape Devil’s Island and end up as good Samaritans to a hapless family around Christmastime.  The definition of “wry humor.”  People die: it’s funny.

  • Any holiday traditions?

    It’s not officially Xmas until I hear “Christmas Wrapping” by the Waitresses on the radio.  Any DJ who plays that song before Thanksgiving is dead to me.

  • 2015 is right around the corner!  Any big plans to ring in the New Year?

    Sleep!

  • Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions?  What are they?

    Same as last year: “more production, less consumption.”  I usually stick to it for about half a year—hence the need for a yearly resolution.

Interview with a Zenescope Creative – Holiday Edition

LaToya Morgan, writer of Goddess Inc., shares some of her favorite things about the Holiday seasons!

  1. What is on your holiday wish list this year?

    I usually have lots of gadgety things on my holiday wish list. The latest phone, e-reader, headphones, etc.  Also, lots of books.  I love to pilfer the “Best of” Lists and catch up on my reading.

  1. What is the best holiday gift you ever received?

    My favorite gift to get every year is the $10 my grandmother would give me for Christmas.  Somehow, she always made it feel like a million dollars.

  1. Any amusing holiday stories you’d like to share?

    The White Elephant game at work is always fun.  One year people brought cheesy gifts and I got an ’80s action flick full of people I’d never heard of.  It was terrible and hilarious.  Such a fun gift.

  1. Any holiday traditions?

    In my family, you can open one gift Christmas Eve and have to wait to open the rest on Christmas.  I love the mounting anticipation.

  1. Do you have a favorite Christmas / Holiday movie?

    My absolute favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard.  A close second is Scrooged.  I love Bill Murray in that movie.

  1. 2015 is right around the corner!  Any big plans to ring in the New Year?

    My plan is to write more comics!  And finally do a book signing at one of the cons.

  1. Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions?  What are they?

    My New Years’ Resolution — travel more.  There are so many places I haven’t seen — and I’m dying to see them!

  1. What are you looking forward to in 2015?

    I’m looking forward to keeping my resolution and traveling to far away places.  I’m also hoping to write a lot more and get a few projects I’m really excited about off the ground.

  1. List any websites or links you’d like us to share.
