Episode 243 With Eric Palicki – August 21, 2016

This week in Episode 243, I had a great time talking with comics creator Eric Palicki, who created Orphans Volume One, Red Angel Dragnet Volume One and Fake Empire, all now available in graphic novel format. He then scripted a Gamora and Kitty Pride story in Guardians of Infinity #6 for Marvel, so he’s developed quite a lot of great storytelling in sci-fi, fantasy and horror as well as worked for the House of Ideas. We talk about his writing experiences, including how all these terrific books came to be, then he gives us information on his next project and how we can be sure to get our order in for it! Be sure to listen to what he has to say! For more information, check out Eric’s website at this link!

Episode 237 With Dan Daugherty – July 10, 2016

Episode #237 features my great interview with comics creator Dan Dougherty, the maker of such great books as Touching Evil, Volume One: The Curse Escapes, Bob Howard: Plumber of the Unknown, and a series of funny and touching comics strips called Beardo (so named because Dan himself sports a beard, something I can relate to). First, we discuss his excellent horror story, which focuses on a female attorney and single mother who inherits a curse that will change her life forever. We discuss how Dan conceived of this story, how human the various characters are, and how he has deftly weaved only the first chapter in this three-volume tale. Then we move to Beardo and talk about how this autobiographical strip made me laugh and cry as we move through the recent stages of his life. We talk about upcoming projects as well, but to get his books, you can go to the store at his website at this link. Highly recommended, one and all!

Episode 236 With Luke Cooper, Cory Levine – July 3, 2016

This week, Episode #236 features two great interviews! First up is Luke Cooper from Insane Comics, creator of Hollow Girl. Here’s the first issue’s description: “Six years ago, little Katherine Harlow killed her own parents. Showing no signs of remorse or regret, she was said to be a girl without a soul. Now, dressed in black except for an expressionless white mask, Kat kills for the dead – a willing vessel for the souls of the wrongfully killed that call out for vengeance. But how did an apparently soulless child become a brutal vigilante? And are the voices that she hears really those of the dead or are they merely symptoms of a dangerous, all-consuming psychosis?” The third issue in this series has just been released, so be sure to go to their website store to get your copy as well as catch up on the first two issues in this series!

Then we wrap things up with a powerful chat with Cory Levine from Bowery Boys, a terrific hardcover historical story dealing with New York City in the 1850s! Here’s how this book is described: “When his father is framed for murder, immigrant son Nikolaus McGovern rallies together a motley crew of street youths in a rip-roaring coming-of-age adventure based on the period history of antebellum New York City! Set against the backdrop of rampant political corruption, vicious street gangs, nascent labor reform and ardent xenophobia–can Niko and his friends triumph in a life-and-death battle against their oppressors, or will they succumb to the engines of socio-economic progress?” We talk about how this tale full of shocks and surprises has come together, Cory’s time at Marvel working on the Soleil collections and what he has planned for the future!  Check with your local comics shop to see if they have this book in stock, and if they don’t, you can order it in paper edition at Amazon at this link, or digitally by going to Comixology.com or for your Kindle as this link at Amazon.com!

They are dragged into a fight older then creation and are given the choice we all have. To fight for good or lay down to evil.” Be sure to support this great Indie comic today!

Then we warp where this podcast has never gone before, chatting with Mike Johnson and Ryan Parrott, creators of Star Trek: Manifest Destiny among other great Trek comics coming from IDW Publishing!

Here’s the first volume’s description: “An angel, a demon, and a Horseman of the Apocalypse: these beings, although ancient and iconic, struggle to be understood and find their place in today’s society. Humanity has changed since their creation, and they along with it. But together we’ll chronicle them on their journey through tales of self-worth and purpose.
