JOE: One of the best things about being able to work on a comic that features so many imaginary creatures, is that you get to stitch together whatever animals you want from nature. For Stan's ogre, I combined an elephant with an orangutang.
STAN: And a very convincing ogre it is, too. It looks plausible, and I love the portrayal of inherent strength and savagery. An impressive piece of figure-work. This is a creature you can believe in.
