Episode 85 – Sifting Through The Remains with Cullen Bunn!

by Chris Thompson

With Cullen Bunn …
 
Following on from last week’s chat with Iron Fist‘s Kaare Andrews (which you can still listen to here) – this time around I catch up with prolific writer Cullen Bunn (Magneto, Sinestro, The Sixth Gun) to talk about the many books he’s doing, including The Remains from Monkeybrain Comics!
 
We talk about how he started out (both in prose and in comics), what he’s learned from working on so many different titles at the same time, how he approaches each new project, and why he loves Survivor as much as I do! (Hint: it’s kinda like what wrestling is for others.)

Episode 84 – Forging an Iron Fist with Kaare Andrews!

by Chris Thompson

With Kaare Andrews …
 
After last week’s chat with Rick Remender (which you can still listen to here), this time I catch up with writer/artist/all-round-creator-and-good-guy Kaare Andrews (The Incredible Hulk, A + X, Spider-Man: Reign) to talk about his run on Iron Fist which begins this week from Marvel Comics.
 
Kaare & I talk about everything from auteur theory to childhood comicbook memories – taking in groupthink, the debate over San Diego Comic-Con, the difference between comics and films, and why there aren’t more writer/artists these days. It’s a fun and fascinating discussion that will hopefully leave you thinking …

Following on from last week’s chat with Simon Roy (which you can still listen to here) – this time around I catch up with creator Rick Remender (Captain America, Black Science, Deadly Class) to talk about the re-release of his classic series Fear Agent from Dark Horse Comics!
 
We discuss how he started out, what it’s like working with other artists on his different books, how he juggles so many competing projects, and what’s coming up next for both him and Heath Huston (the eponymous Fear Agent). It’s a glimpse into one of the busiest creators working today!

Episode 82 – Restarting Jan’s Atomic Hearts with Simon Roy!

by Chris Thompson

With Simon Roy …
 
After last week’s Hellboy Day specials with Mike Mignola and friends (which you can still listen to here), this time around I catch up with rising star Simon Roy (Prophet, Murder Book, Jan’s Atomic Heart) ahead of this week’s Emerald City Comicon.
 
Simon & I discuss how he first broke into comics, working on Prophet with Brandon Graham and The Field with Ed Brisson, as well as the perils and pitfalls of making your early work available again. It’s a great chat with a young writer/artist whose career is on an upward trajectory!

Episode 81 – Hellboy Day with Mike Richardson & Friends!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Richardson & Friends …
 
Following on from this week’s chat with Mike Mignola (which can still be heard here) – I continue the Hellboy Day celebrations with Dark Horse Publisher Mike Richardson, Mouse Guard‘s David Petersen, and editor Scott Allie – as well as Maura McHugh & Kim Newman, who have just been announced as writers on the new Witchfinder series from Dark Horse Comics!
 
We chat about what Mike’s work, particularly on Hellboy, means to each of them personally; how it affects what they’re doing now; and what else they have coming up. It’s a fitting tribute to a man and a character who have endured so long, as well as spotlighting how that legacy has impacted others.

Episode 80 – Celebrating Hellboy Day with Mike Mignola!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Mignola …
 
After last week’s chat with Jai Nitz (which you can still listen to here), this time I check back in with Mike Mignola on the eve of Hellboy Day. Mike & I first spoke on the landmark 50th episode a few months back (which you can find right here), so it was a pleasure to speak again.
 
Mike & I discuss how he feels after twenty years, why he still struggles with confidence in his work, what he still wants to achieve, and why Dave Stewart is the best colorist in comics. It’s the perfect way to celebrate 20 years of Hellboy from Mike Mignola & Dark Horse Comics.

Episode 79 – Rediscovering the Dream Thief with Jai Nitz!

by Chris Thompson

With Jai Nitz …
 
After last week’s chat with Greg Rucka (which you can still listen to here), this time I catch up with Jai Nitz (Green Hornet, Paper Museum, El Diablo) who wrote my favourite mini-series of last year, Dream Thief, which has just been released in trade this week from Dark Horse Comics.
 
Jai & I discuss how he first broke into comics, what makes a good editor, the advantages (and disadvantages) that new creators face, and what’s coming up next for him & Dream Thief. It’s a great conversation with one of the hardest-working guys you may not yet know!

Episode 78 – Pulling Back The Veil with Greg Rucka!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Rucka …
 
Following on from last episode with The Bunker‘s Joshua Hale Fialkov (which you can still listen to here) – this week I catch up with the incredibly talented writer Greg Rucka (Whiteout, Queen & Country, Lazarus) about his new series Veil, which is out now from Dark Horse Comics!
 
Greg & I chat about what first drew him to writing, how he balances comic scripts and prose, and what his writing process is like. Plus we discuss the difference a good editor can make and what he’s learned after a successful Kickstarter campaign for Lady Sabre with Rick Burchett.

Episode 77 – Entering The Bunker with Joshua Hale Fialkov!

by Chris Thompson

With Joshua Hale Fialkov …
 
After the conclusion of my Angoulême Festival coverage with Paul Pope, Natalie Nourigat & Nicholas Hitori De (which you can still listen to here) – we return to our regularly scheduled programming this week with writer Joshua Hale Fialkov (Echoes, Skyman, The Bunker).
 
In what proves to be a rather frank (and lengthy) interview, Joshua opens up about how he got started, the personal trials and tribulations that have shaped his writing, and how he sees the industry today. It’s an entertaining & interesting discussion that I’d encourage everyone to hang around for.

Episode 76 – Live from Angoulême with Paul Pope & friends!

by Chris Thompson

With Paul Pope, Natalie Nourigat & Nicholas Hitori De …
 
Following on from last week’s Angoulême special with Joe Keatinge & friends (which you can still listen to here) – this week I conclude my report from the 41st Festival International de la Bande Dessinée in Angoulême with Paul Pope, Natalie Nourigat & Nicholas Hitori De!
 
First up, I chat with the talented Natalie Nourigat & Nicholas Hitori De about art, travel, and what it’s like working with Jamie S. Rich. Then I present Paul Pope’s discussion from Angoulême, including my scene-stealing question (okay, I may be a little biased on that one!) … The sound isn’t ideal, but hopefully you can hang in there for it.
