"Torpedoboy is the protagonist, and we are taken step by step through his adventure. I’d been drawing Torpedoboy for several years and his face was kind of nondescript. Then, it was as if all of sudden things came into focus. I was suddenly okay with letting people know who Torpedoboy actually was. He looks like me, he is me."
