Chris Onstad, Creator of Achewood: Interview on The Sound of Young America


Chris Onstad is the creator of the web comic Achewood, which chronicles the lives of a group of 20-something stuffed animals. It's a surreal and hilarious strip, once named the best graphic novel of the year by Time Magazine, despite not being a graphic novel. Onstad has just published his first book collection of the strip with a major press, called "The Great Outdoor Fight."

Such a great story, bought a few copies for friends and got me mad props.

That was fantastic! Thanks so much for this.

two thumbs up on that.hadn't heard of achewood before; excited for my new ignoring-my-powerpoint hobby.thanks!!

dude, it's hell of weird hearing the Creator's voice. he sounds like, normal.

What makes you say they're 20 somethings? Beef has hell of depression that took at least 30 years to fully develop.

Long-time Achewood fan. Bought Ray's Rad Chilies, and ate them all. Plan to purchase the book from Amazon sometime this month.

Awesome interview. Always love to hear from Chris Onstad.

I didn't think it could be possible for chris onstad to get hatemail.

Twentysomething!? "Anyone born after the McDLT has no business stomping around acting punk rock!"
