In this special episode of the Worldcraft Club we interview Dave Schmidt, about his work on Recovery, his online webcomic. Dave’s approach to worldbuilding is fairly easy going as he builds a post apocalyptic western with heavy influences from 90’s era anthropomorphic cartoons (TMNT, Gargoyles, Tailspin and Street Sharks) where the rule of cool reigns. We find though, as we dive in deeper, that Dave’s world has solid boundaries and expectations being set for his readers and that worldbuilding can sometimes be nonspecific and based on themes and tropes that are well understood by your readers. We hope you enjoy this fantastic interview and don’t forget to check Dave’s work out by following the links below.
