Your new comic is called Aurora Snow: True Stories of Adult Film
Stars. In a few words, what is it about (apart from the obvious)?
It’s a cool way for Aurora to tell her story in words and pictures about how
she got to be a porn star and what it is like being one.
also added her fantasy about what else she might have done with the
Red Riding Hood fairy tale.
How big a creative
input did Aurora Snow herself have in the project [Aurora
Snow interview - click here]?
actually – Aurora suggested the cover for example and most every
sentence in the book is a quote from exclusive interviews that Aurora’s
co-writer, Jamie Gardner had with Aurora. She also had input on
which artists we used for the book from our regular stable of artists. Oh
– and she sent us many of the photos that we used either as reference or
in the actual book.
your collaboration with Aurora Snow like?
It was great! She gave us access to interview her and follow-up, let us
have some hard to find photos, and she came to San Diego to promote the
book before it even came out! Plus, she’s not a diva, she’s just
about Aurora's life/career depicted in the comicbook you found
For me the wildest thing is that she went to a hypnotist to get ready for her
first anal sex scene! And
really just the fact that she is just such a regular girl. If you
meet her in a grocery store, you would never know what she does for a
living. It’s almost like a secret identity à la Clark Kent/Superman.
can you tell us about the artists who worked on the project?
were probably half a dozen artists that worked on this book (including me).
I think Gus Norman was a great choice to draw Aurora, he really captured
her cuteness. Philo, and Peter Penn from Eros Comix did some, along
with several others. It’s a nice mix!
You are probably best known as the creator/artist/writer of
Demi the Demoness.
How does your artistic approach to a real life person like Aurora Snow
differ from an entirely fictional creature like Demi?
these biography books are a lot harder to do than my Demi comic – I
don’t have to get Demi’s approval or use a whole lot of reference to
draw her or her friends. With the bio books, you have to try and
find out where stuff happened and what the people (like adult film
directors) looked like, even what color the porn stars hair was 4 years ago
– It can be tough to do some times!
Your approach to
Aurora's bio seems to be very light-hearted, even ironic at times. How did that come about?
We really wanted the
book to reflect not just Aurora’s story, but her personality, so we came
up with the idea of a sort of scrapbook/diary approach. Aurora
had a bunch of diary entries she had written for her website a few years
ago and we were able to use some of that along with the interview, so I
think her personality just comes shining through once you start to read
it. We tried to make the art feel the same way.
This Ain't Star Trek
did you choose Aurora Snow as the subject of your new comic?
My goal with the porn bio comics was to really try to do porn stars that were
either very well known or had a great connection to comic/sci-fi fans and
Aurora had all those qualities. She played Jan in the big hit Not
the Bradys, she was in This Ain’t Star Trek, her quacking sound was
used on Howard Stern for years and she understood how comics are a great
way to reach out to new fans.
Aurora Snow films you would recommend?
Audition 7, Not The Bradys 1 & 2, Aurora Snow’s Perverted
Tales (she also directed that one).
A few words about the cover that
shows a very feline Aurora Snow?
LOVES cats and she wanted to be a cat on the cover, so Barry Barnes did
this great piece with Aurora as a cat.

what way (if in any) does the Aurora Snow-issue differ from earlier
releases in the series?
Well actually its longer (since it’s 40 pages) It has a unique mix of
art, photos and digital effects which couldn’t really be done in the
older books and I think it reflects Aurora’s personality very well.
It’s a more personal book in many ways.
Is anyone lined up yet for future
issues of True Stories of Adult Film Stars?
We are talking about updating some of the older books, like Kylie Ireland or
Brittany O’Connell for example. Who knows who we’ll do next?
future projects you'd like to talk about?
now we are trying to get Demi & the Sex Squad Special #1 out soon and
we are working on a PREQUEL comic to the Demi the Demoness Movie
& the Nazi Mystics).
