DF Interview: Larime Taylor gives ‘Voice’ to his next work
By Byron Brewer
That one-man band of comic book creators, Larime Taylor, is at it again as he returns us to the strange and intriguing world of Zoey in A Voice in the Dark: Get Your Gun.
This most amazing creator tells Dynamic Forces about his life, in and out of the industry, his wife’s new role on A Voice in the Dark, and how Zoey will get into trouble this time!
Dynamic Forces: So, Larime, to catch up: Last time we talked, you were trying to move to Las Vegas to be closer to family and get a fresh start with your career. How did the fundraiser go and have you moved?
Larime Taylor: It went well. The move was a bit rough because of health issues Sylv has, but we got there and now we're settling in. We're in a much better place now in every way possible. I want to say a sincere thank you to everyone who helped make it happen.
DF: I know that one reason you were having difficulty was your disability. Can our readers still contribute to your fundraising, and if so where?
Larime Taylor: They can buy the comic, or use the donate button at my website's store section. Either is greatly appreciated!
DF: OK, last time around, you were worried because your first creative and totally self-done comic book A Voice in the Dark was coming to is logical conclusion and a collection was already slated. Now we have a new arc, “Get Your Gun.” Is this something you had planned?
Larime Taylor: I had hoped the book would keep going, yes. It all comes down to sales. In my case, it's below where I'd like it to be but still making me some money. Not a lot, but enough to keep going a little longer at least. We're doing it in color and making it a 5-issue mini to try and make it more accessible to new readers and grow the fan base. If it goes well, I'll do another, and so on.
DF: Tell us a little about the new arc.
Larime Taylor: It starts with a flash-forward, then picks up about ten minutes after where #7 left off. It's all about the consequences of the murders she just committed. There's also a proper introduction to the Trophy Hunter, the other killer that just sent Zoey a Polaroid. He plays a big part in the story.
DF: Tell us about this most intriguing big-bad: “a vengeful father with a friend on the force”?
Larime Taylor: Well, that's part of the mystery to be unraveled. The first time Zoey killed she was in the clear, other than a brief police interview to clear her. Her second and third kills aren't going to be as easy to leave behind her. There's fallout this time.
DF: Is Uncle Zeke on board this time around?
Larime Taylor: Of course. Zeke will be around as always.
DF: And you say your wife, Sylv, will be doing colors on this new book? Is it strange to see your noir shaded world take on bright hues now?
Larime Taylor: It's not THAT bright. We're going pretty desaturated, washed out sepia tones and cold blue-grays. There are splashes of other, brighter colors, but they're for emphasis. It's still very noir.
DF: Are you still a one-man band on “Get Your Gun” except for Sylv?
Larime Taylor: It's just us two, yeah.
DF: So, aside from Voice, what is down the road for Larime Taylor as a creator?
Larime Taylor: I'm working on ideas as always, but nothing solid yet.
Dynamic Forces would like to thank Larime Taylor for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions. A new Voice in the Dark miniseries hits stores in September!
