Interview With A Goalie: The Year Four  Scoop
By John J. Johnson


This is it--the final piece of the pie, the slice we’ve all been waiting for.

Check Please: Year Four--the last volume of the hockey and pie-filled webcomic--starts this month with long-awaited answers about Jack, Bitty, and the aftermath of the Stanley Cup kiss of Year Three. Like….Finally.

Oh. Uh, by the way, I’m John Johnson, a character in the comic.

You might know me as Johnson the Metaphysical Goalie, or the guy who writes the forewords for the self-published editions of Check Please. That’s me, lol. =^)  I’m barely in the comic but offer a pretty unique perspective on the story since, I like, have actually talked to Bitty and everything. I had the chance to sit down with Ngozi Ukazu, writer and illustrator of Check Please  to chat about what Year Four  holds for my favorite backer, and about her plans for the future.



John J. Johnson: Hahaha, bro! It’s great to finally be able to sit down and interview you. Though I guess it was inevitable. Or whatever.

Ngozi Ukazu: It’s nice to talk to you too, Johnson! Where are we?

Johnson: Uhhh, not quite sure. It feels like a never-ending shapeless void. Or it could be Annie’s. Either way the coffee’s great haha. =-)

Ngozi: Fair enough!

Johnson: So. What should readers expect for Year Four?

Ngozi: Whew! So much. Because Year Four  is Bitty’s senior year and the final chapter of Check Please, everything is coming to a head. Bitty and Jack ended Year Three  by coming out in this super huge way, and Year Four  is dealing with the ramifications of that. We’re going to be seeing Bitty confronting his demons--on and off the ice. So that of course means, you know.

Johnson: Oh shit. Checking? We finally find out why Bitty gets so freaked out by checking? Bro....

Ngozi: Well, that and Bitty has to confront Suzanne...as well as go head-to-head with Coach, his dad.

Johnson: Dude. I’m stressed. God.

Ngozi: UH!!! Johnson, same!

Johnson: Oh yeah. How did finishing up Year Three  feel?

Ngozi: It was fun! Exciting? A little heart breaking. Year Three  ended with this big reveal, this moment that I had been sitting on for years. It was cool to see readers reactions AND draw the character reactions, you know? How was it for you?

Johnson: Man. Wild. I knew there was going to be a cliffhanger but. Man, I talked to Jack a few days later, you know to congratulate him and all. You know, honestly, I think Jack and Bitty surprised themselves a bit. Like they knew it was the right time and right place--but overall? Neither of them woke up that morning like “oh yeah let’s come out on national television center ice after the Stanley cup.”

Johnson: Uh. Spoilers.

Ngozi: I’m so jealous. I wish I could ask them questions.

Johnson: Well, one important question--How much do you know about what’s going on with Ransom, Holster, Shitty, and Lardo? The rest of SMH?

Ngozi: The Check, Please  cast is a LOT bigger now--we’ve gone from a main cast of about 6 to a huge roster of 20 supporting characters. It’s a challenge finding screen time for the main members of SMH, but I think readers will be happy with some cameos and storylines. Also. We’ll definitely check-in on the frogs and there’s a tadpole or two who will make some waves.

Johnson: Ohhhh. Like a trouble maker?

Ngozi: Yes...but not exactly. But there's an underclassman that Bitty will want to have a heart to heart with. Though that might not go as planned.

Johnson: Speaking of Check Please  getting bigger--Check Please  will be in bookstores this Fall? How do you feel about that.

Ngozi: September 18th, 2018. I feel pretty good, honestly! Though I don’t know if new, book-readers will understand Johnson the Metaphysical Goalie. You’re admittedly kind of confusing.

Johnson: Meh. Existence is confusing. And a final question. Will readers ever know what I look like?

Ngozi: Maybe?

Johnson: Really!?

Ngozi: No.



Check, Please: Year Four  launches on Monday, June 11th on checkpleasecomic.com









FYI, Johnson the Metaphysical Goalie:




http://omgcheckplease.tumblr.com/post/70107350347

“What’s Johnson talking about?” asked Bitty.

Shitty shrugged. “No one’s ever really sure.”

http://omgcheckplease.tumblr.com/post/174832503042

Ford: Lardo said he was the goalie before you guys started?

Dex: Yeah. I met him during recruiting weekend, but…
he said that was “off-panel“ and didn’t count?? Super weird dude.

Bully: ha. nice.

We know how Johnson sees Chowder,
but how does Chowder see his predecessor?
Is he in awe? A lil weirded out?

By the way, in the Stanley Cup parade, it looks like Ngozi (herself??) made Jack a RAINBOW background for the team flag--










FYI, that's Bitty and Jack with the Cup in the left 'photo' and Nursey and Chowder in the right 'photo' below. Best quote in the article in the school paper: Jack is "our favorite (and now gayest!!) alum"--

also FYI: as Jack is mentioned as "Jack Zimmermann '15" that means Bitty will be graduating in Spring/Summer 2017--so the comic timeline is  "now" Summer/Fall 2016. I think Ngozi intended to keep the comic timeline current with actual events, but again, it's hard to draw and juggle all her other stuff in the air. I don't know how she does it!












Heh!    Roll Eyes Roll Eyes





- Troye Sivan as Eric ‘Bitty’ Bittle






- Matthew Daddario as Jack Zimmermann






- Ryan Potter as Chris ‘Chowder’ Chow






- Zayn Malik as Derek ‘Nursey’ Nurse
