"We'd rather stay anonymous": The Glasgow Herald profiles Sandra Marrs and John Chalmers, the husband-and-wife comics team better known as Metaphrog, creators of the Louis graphic novels:

"You spoil the characters with a toy. Garfield is diluted as a character if he's looking out at you from every car. There are tacky toys everywhere, and it's a risk to make one, unless the character is iconic, because it's taking the character out of context. People want Louis on t-shirts and that's nice. I'd rather Louis be known than us. He's quite an iconic character and represents something which we are behind and believe in. We'd rather stay anonymous."
