TOM AND JERRY Writer And Artist On The Similarities Between The Series And His New Comic SOLO - (EXCLUSIVE)

TOM AND JERRY Writer And Artist On The Similarities Between The Series And His New Comic  SOLO - <font color=red>(EXCLUSIVE)</font>

Storyteller Oscar Martin spent decades bringing the iconic cat and mouse duo of Tom and Jerry to life and we recently spoke to him about how his work on the series compares to his newest project, Solo!

The cat-and-mouse duo of Tom and Jerry has been a household name for decades. With the franchise kicking off in 1940 from William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, there have been countless stories told featuring the anthropomorphic duo over the years.

With Tom and Jerry's continued success over the years, the two remain popular enough to receive outings in other mediums than just animation. Just this year, the live-action feature based on the characters and starring Chloe Grace Moretz, who wowed audiences as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass.

In addition, the cartoon duo has had a steady presence not just in cartoons but also in print form with comic books. While many creatives have had the chance to work with these characters across multiple projects, one of the most prominent remains to be Oscar Martin, who was a writer and artist for Tom and Jerry spanning three decades.

When Oscar Martin launched his newest comic book project, Solo, we spoke with him to share his thoughts. Now that volume two of the series is launching, we've caught up with Martin once more, this time to ask about the similarities between his old and new stories.

Literary Joe: For the adults who love Tom and Jerry, are there other similarities between the two besides the anthropomorphic characters that you can point to, either intentionally or by accident?

Oscar Martin: I have spent 30 years writing and drawing TOM & JERRY comics, but I always tried to add part of my way of doing in those works, to give them a bit of my personality while remaining faithful to the product. Therefore, whoever wants to find some similarity can find it successfully. At the end of the day, it comes from the same head and is made with the same hands, although, for that, we would have to recover the oldest stories.
