Barry Linck creator of the webcomic Phineus: Magician for Hire takes the hot seat…
Q1: What is ‘Phineus: Magician For Hire’ about?
A1: Phineus is a fantasy/horror/sci fi comic, published on the web, about a paranormal investigations team.
Phin and Sara Beam make up the Beam Agency. The married couple solve all manners of supernatural problems, from vampires and werewolves, to evil garden gnomes, zombies, Elder Things and evil sentient eyeballs bent on world domination.
Phineus is a wizard. A magic Adept, who can cast spells and do magic. Sara is a gun-toting, butt-kicking archeologist and former superhero. Together they protect the world from all the things that go bump in the night.
Q2: Phineus and Sara may be married but they seem like they’re from different world – How did these two get together?
A2: Well, they are from very different worlds, but the same as well.
In the Phineus universe, certain people are what I call “Freak Magnets”. Certain people are genetically destined to run into the paranormal or supernatural. These two are Freak Magnets.
