The internet has become a great tool for creators to really push their work; especially in the independent scene. One of the most innovated story telling comic/ prose projects is none other than Urban 30; A Washington D.C. super hero team which has art and is written by several writers with different, individual perspective. We are here with founder and writer of Urban 30: C. Lorenzo Johnston.

FR: Thank you so much for this interview
CLJ: Anytime. I'm glad to have a chance to share my site with your readers.
FR: Absolutely. We here at Comic Book Clash know the importance of helping creators be seen & known. And Urban 30 has been around a while now. As a matter of fact, this past week you just had a milestone, correct?
CLJ: Yes, Monday was our four-year anniversary. We started in December 2007 and I'm happy that we're still moving forward with such a dynamic team of writers.
FR: How does it feel to have accomplished such a great ongoing run and to still be going?
CLJ: It's very exciting. The writers who are local can see me smiling ear to ear when we talk about the blog. When it started, i always pictured a certain level of collaboration with writers. To be at that level is a thrill for me. I'm hoping we'll continue to grow and reach more audiences.
FR: Before we get into that more, for readers out there who haven't experience Urban 30, please give our readers a break down of what Urban 30 is about?
CLJ: The Urban 30 is a team of heroes - much like any other group of super heroes. You've got different personalities that come together and reveal different points of view on any given situation. The team fights crime in Washington DC (or our version of it). And they struggle with being a classic hero team. By that I mean they don't follow all the normal rules. They operate as individuals more than a team and they don't always uphold the rule of not hurting the bad guy.
