With r.m. Guera …
 
This week I present my chat with creator r.m. Guera (Scalped, The Goddamned) from the recent NICE convention in Bedford.
 
What starts out as a career retrospective quickly becomes a fascinating discussion about creativity and the creative process – one of the most interesting panels I’ve had the pleasure of hosting.

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.
