SixShot.com talks with The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder about the second season of the animated series, controversy, and the end of the comic strip:
Did the show play a factor in your decision to end the comic strip?
I do think that the show played a factor in me walking away from the strip because I tried to do both and it took a huge toll on me. I constantly play with the idea of doing an online or wireless strip. It’s something that I think could happen. Whether it happens after the show or while the show is running depends on how many hours I can go without sleep.
Would you consider placing the comic strip in newspapers again?
No, because I can’t meet their schedules. Seven days a week is just too much and they make you do all or nothing. I could perhaps do a weekly strip but it would need to be under my terms.
The Boondocks airs on Thursdays on Adult Swim.
