Interview: Matt Miner

To introduce Matt Miner is to introduce the quintessential indie creator. Matt is a man who has figured out how to translate his passions into a specialized media outlet. He is a man who has strong opinions, and those opinions are not, at first glance, easily translated into a comic book.

Toe Tag Riot is not only the name of the comic but also that of the featured players in the story.  They are a band formed of various long-timers, those who stood out from other bands and couldn’t handle the b.s. that goes with working with musicians.   Continue reading
