As an ardent webcomics fan, I have read several over the years of my life, but there are only a few that I consider my absolute favorites. One such favorite is Blue Milk Special (www.bluemilkspecial.com), a comic that parodies the original Star Wars trilogy. I recently had the chance to talk to Rod and Leanne Hannah, the creators of BMS, and they were kind enough to answer some questions for me concerning their lives. Rod did the majority of the talking, and with their permission, I have shared their thoughts and answers.
