New York City Comic Con may have happened more than a month ago but Multiversity Comics’s coverage of the East Coast’s largest comics and pop culture event is just getting going. Multiversity sent 14 of our staff to the event this year for interviews, panel reports, and more so expect lots more to come over the next few weeks. This way, even if you couldn’t make it yourself, you can still see the con through our eyes.

Our NYCC interviews now branch into Interview with a Webcomic territory, with a chat with New York-area based webcomic artist Tony Wolf. Tony had what many New Yorkers consider to be the renter’s holy grail: the chance to live in the same apartment in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for over two decades.  In that time, he’s seen the neighborhood transform from ethnic enclave to the Greenpoint many of us know today courtesy of the HBO series Girls.  Tony’s transformed those experiences and recollections into a webcomic called “Greenpoint of View.” In the first part of his NYCC chat with social media manager Kate Kosturski he shares the origin for these very unique stories.

Our thanks to Tony for his time and a very thoughtful, in-depth discussion. We’ll have part 2 of this interview for you tomorrow. You can check out Tony’s Greenpoint of View comics online via comiXology, and follow him on Twitter at @tonywolfness.
