Freeman: Most of these stories happen in an indefinite time and place.
Tagame: There’s a piece I did called “Pride” which was very specific in its location and era, and unfortunately that one piece became obsolete faster than any of my other stories. I had characters with beepers and stuff like that, and it took maybe five years for it to just not make any sense. Or I mention cruising spots that just don’t exist anymore. I’ve been afraid of that happening to my other stories, so I calculate if it’s going to be modern, I don’t mention what year or where exactly something takes place. Just until last month I was running a serial comic in Badi magazine, and it involves someone using their iPhone to take pictures and video of people. I’m positive that by next year it’ll already be obsolete.
Freeman: Bondage keeps better than the iPhone.
