Exclusive Interview With Punk Taco Creator Adam Wallenta
I had a nice email chat with Punk Taco creator Adam Wallenta who is currently running a Kickstarter for the comic. I talked with him about Punk Taco and got to know more about the long and varied career of Adam Wallenta.
Punk Taco has to be special for you cause you wrote this with your 5-year-old son. How did that come about?
It’s very special to me. The name Punk Taco had been bouncing around in my head for almost ten years after joking around with my nephews. I knew I wanted to develop it but never had time. Or rather time flew by at the speed of light.
I find inspiration all around me. I’ve loved comic books all my life. I started reading them when I was about 6, and I’m going to be 43 soon. So at this point, it is in my blood. Other artists and creators inspire me. Not just the ones working now but also the legends. I still read and go back to the classics, and I find great inspiration in everything Jack Kirby did. John Romita, Steve Ditko Rich Buckler, John Byrne, John Buscema, Ross Andru…these are the guys I grew up on. Also Arthur Adams, Lee Weeks, Paul Smith. So many great artists. Not to mention all the amazing writers.
