Episode 209 – In a League of His Own with Kevin O’Neill!

by Chris Thompson

With Kevin O’Neill …
 
This week I’m proud to share a very special interview with the legendary Kevin O’Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) discussing the early stages of his career before moving into the American market.
 
Kevin & I discuss what comics influenced him growing up, how he ended up working in the field, his early fanzines about visual effects and film, leading into the 2000AD years. It’s a fascinating look at British comics history, as well as the key role Kevin has played over the last few decades.
 
We’ll continue the Pop Culture Hound celebrations by double-shipping episodes for the next two weeks! And you can read John Freeman’s tribute to Jan Shepheard (as mentioned in the podcast) here: downthetubes.net/?p=16015.

Episode 200 – INDEH with Ethan Hawke & Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Ethan Hawke & Greg Ruth …
 
It’s here … the landmark Episode 200!
 
After starting as Pop Culture Hound over four years ago, the podcast has been through a lot of changes – and it’s all led to this moment as Chris chats with creators Ethan Hawke & Greg Ruth about their new graphic novel INDEH from Grand Central Publishing.
 
Navigating three continents and timezones, they get into a lengthy discussion about why this book is so important, how it came to be, and what they hope to achieve with it. It’s a fascinating insight into the creative process as viewed by three different, yet somehow similar, creators.
