Episode 5 – with Curt Pires & David Hine!

by Chris Thompson

With Curt Pires & David Hine …
 
In this week’s episode, Taylor and I dissect the amazing indie comic LP by newcomers Curt Pires and Ramon Villalobos. Done in a similar style and ethos to Sam Humphries Our Love Is Real, LP is a bold statement from two creators you should really keep an eye on. Curt even stops by to provide some background commentary after our Skype link-up fails.
 
From there I conduct another one of my famous pub chats with creator David Hine (Strange Embrace, Elephantmen, The Bulletproof Coffin). We discuss his writing technique, the upcoming Storm Dogs with Doug Braithwaite, his gradual shift away from the Big Two to creator-owned projects, and what else is on the horizon.

Episode 4 – with Eliza Frye, Sarah Becan & The 315!

by Chris Thompson


With Eliza Frye, Sarah Becan & The 315 …
 
This episode continues my aural adventures at San Diego Comic-Con 2012.
 
First up, I chat with independent creators Eliza Frye and Sarah Becan who were both able to publish their latest work through successful Kickstarter campaigns.
 
Taylor and I then peel back the layers of the books (Regalia and Shuteye) only to discover – yet again – that we’ve approached them from different angles.
 
Finally, I present my lengthy interview with Matt Heistand and Dan Fifield of the ThreeOneFive at the rather noisy Dick’s Last Resort. We discuss their web series Deep Dive Daredevils, working on back-ups for Joe Keatinge’s Hell Yeah! and why it takes three guys to write a comic.

Episode 3 – with Ales Kot from Wild Children & Change!

by Chris Thompson


With Ales Kot …
 
In this episode, I chat with creator Ales Kot about his life and inspirations (both in and out of comics) as well as his Image Comics projects Wild Children and Change.
 
Ales is the up-and-coming writer you need to know about, and if you don’t believe me now then you will by the end of this interview.
 
Also in this episode, Taylor and I have an in-depth discussion about Wild Children while taking a look at some of the more interesting references contained within.
