did you broke on the comicdome? What you have read when you was young and
what's artist influenced you most?
broke into comics in l981 with Nexus, whom I created with Mike
Baron. When I was young I read mostly Marvel comics because I
loved their artists, Jack Kirby and John Romita. Kirby remains
my most pronounced influence.
is a working day of Steve Rude?
working day begins at around 10:00 am and continues into the evening around

slip in a few errands during the day, maybe going to the gym or something.

Speaking us of your new project The Moth.....

leader of a biker gang who's wanted by the FBI to collect the reward. And
that's only the first 5 pages.
You have work with a lot of writer . What's the
best for you?
The best writer to me was Baron. He had a naturalness with his craft and
what our characters ended up doing always surprised him and I. They felt as
real as you and I.
We will see you at some italian convention?
I hope so! I've visited Italy once and had a great time. Loved the old
churches and statues. I even memorized my ten most important word in Italian!
I'll need to brush up more this time!
What's your favourite comics (if you read someone

and violent. Also, the art is way over the top in some books. Everything is
drawn with muscles and veins everywhere. Yuck!
Upcoming work is the Moth, of which I can promise you a great, fun read! And
maybe a new Steve Rude mini sketchbook for 2004. Also, I hope to
finally release the Nexus animated promo this summer.
