‘Knuckleheads’ comic-book series has sitcom feel
Their comic book series is inspired by sitcoms, but you could compare how comic book creators Brian Winkeler and Robert Wilson IV began working together to a platonic, comic book store “Dating Game.”
Winkeler, of Yukon, is the writer, and Wilson, of Oklahoma City, the artist, of the comic book “Knuckleheads,” now available to order online or on the shelves of Oklahoma City comic book stores.
Brian “Buck” Berlin of New World Comics, 6219 N Meridian Ave., played Chuck Woolery to this pair of comic book creators. Wilson, a fan of Winkeler’s work in the “Popgun” anthology from Image Comics, expressed to Berlin that he’d love to work on the anthology someday. Berlin shared Wilson’s enthusiasm with Winkeler.
“Finally, they were in the store one day at the same time,” Berlin said. Shortly after, the pair began discussing possible ideas for a new series, and “Knuckleheads” was born. Wilson’s Mike Allred-inspired pop enthusiasm and Winkeler’s “30 Rock”-style sardonic wit combined to create the story of Trevor Trevinski, who is accidentally given a powerful alien artifact intended for his more heroic roommate.
