Interview with Ted Sikora, co-writer of APAMA

Ted Sikora is a Cleveland-based filmmaker and comics writer. His current project, APAMA, is a spinoff of his film, HERO TOMORROW. HERO TOMORROW is about a man struggling to live out his superhero fantasies and gets the opportunity to do so when his girlfriend makes him a costume based on his original character, Apama. It doesn’t take him long to start getting into trouble. APAMA is the book the main character in HERO TOMORROW would have written–the story of a Hungarian ice cream truck driver who stumbles upon the ancient secret and power of the undiscovered animal–the Apama. I sat down with Ted over Skype to talk about the Bronze Age of comics, Peter Parker’s everyman status, and his origin story as a writer and filmmaker.
