Gagné, from A to ZED

At Silver Bullet Comic Books, Tim O'Shea talks with Michel Gagné about ZED and Freaky Flora: From A to Z:

"... I do ZED for myself first and foremost. I deal with issues that I find interesting and relevant. Bringing God in the story was something I wanted to do since the very beginning. I wanted to do it in a completely non-religious way. In my story, God is another alien. But what he signifies is important to the whole story. ZED went through a lot of really horrible stuff in the first four issues. Some reviewers have even called me sadistic! At this point, I felt that I needed to offer ZED some closure and give answers. This issue is really pivotal. It marks the point where ZED stops being a victim and becomes pro-active."
