Episode 151 – A Meeting of Oddfellows with Jack Logan!

by Chris Thompson

With Jack Logan …
 
After last week’s landmark 150th episode with Fight Club 2‘s Chuck Palahniuk, I’ve stripped things back for a somewhat more personal show paying tribute to one of my favourite bands: R.E.M. Planning the schedule, I realised Episode 151 was looming, which got me thinking about their classic song Oddfellows Local 151 from the album Document [1989].
 
By my reckoning – and given the incredible crossover between comics and music – I assumed at least one of the band members must be a comic fan, and maybe I could get them on the show. Despite the odd murmur, that search didn’t bear its intended fruit, but along the way I discovered the work of singer-songwriter and cartoonist Jack Logan.
 
Jack, as it turns out, was a largely unsung hero of the Athens, Georgia music scene, which had spawned R.E.M. as well as being a hotbed for creative talent. His eponymous Pete Buck Comics (inspired by the band’s famed guitarist) are still highly sought after today, though Jack has now made them available through his website Jack Logan’s Mysterious Basement.
 
I hope you’ll enjoy this special episode, which serves as a personal document of where music and comics meet for both of us. Jack opens up about where his love of the two began, the many paths his career has taken over the years since, and what future plans he may have for Pete Buck and his other art projects.

Episode 150 – Talking Fight Club with Chuck Palahniuk!

by Chris Thompson

With Chuck Palahniuk …
 
For Episode 150 I’ve pulled out all the stops to get Fight Club 2‘s Chuck Palahniuk on the show to talk about what comics mean to him. Chuck shares his earliest comic memories, what lured him into this brave new world, how he approaches writing his scripts, and what themes he’s looking to explore with Fight Club 2. Plus he gives me the scoop on his plans for future comics work, including Fight Club 3!!!

Episode 148 – Return To Oz with Skottie Young!

by Chris Thompson

With Skottie Young …
 
Returning to the traditional model of Skype interviews, I pick up my conversation with writer/artist Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon, Giant-Size Little Marvel: AVX) after our initial meeting at SDCC back in July. If you haven’t already heard that, then you can listen to it here.
 
We discuss how Skottie ended up working on the Oz books with Eric Shanower, what he thinks about all the Marvel variant covers, and take a brief glimpse at his new series I Hate Fairyland. There’s definitely more to be discussed, so look for a follow-up (and a related special) soon.

Episode 146 – In Conversation with Mark Buckingham!

by Chris Thompson

With Mark Buckingham …
 
On this episode, I sit down for a chat with writer/artist Mark Buckingham (Fables, Fairest, Miracleman). We discuss his early work as an animator with Aardman, working with Neil Gaiman on The Truth & Miracleman, his breakthrough as an inker in the ’90s, and what brought him back to pencilling again. We would’ve got further, but time was against us – so expect a follow-up soon.
 
Plus: as an extra bonus, the second-half of the episode features Mark walking guests through his recent exhibition at the Orbital Gallery, followed by a brief Q&A. There’s some really great stuff discussed throughout, so I hope you’ll stay with us through this slightly longer episode!

Hello and welcome to Orbital In Conversation – the podcast of Orbital Comics in central London! We’re very excited to join the team at Multiversity Comics as not only are they an excellent group of people, but they share a similar level of taste and sensibility … It’s going to be a good fit. For these first two weeks we’ll be double-shipping episodes, so you can get a bit of a feel for us.
 
On this episode, I host a live discussion panel at Orbital Comics to celebrate Doctor Who Comics Day, featuring a number of creators behind Titan Comics’ Doctor Who line. It all starts with writers Paul Cornell, Al Ewing, Rob Williams & Nick Abadzis; and continues with artists Rachael Stott & Brian Williamson, alongside group editor Andrew James.

Episode 143 – In Conversation with Steve Orlando at SDCC!

by Chris Thompson

With Steve Orlando at SDCC …
 
On this week’s show, I’m joined by James & Liz for a wine-tasting under the guidance of writer Steve Orlando (Undertow, Virgil). Steve discusses the finer points of Californian pinot gris, then opens up about how he got the job on Midnighter at DC Comics, what plans he has for the series, and how his own experiences have informed the character.
 
This interview was conducted at an outdoor restaurant during the madness of San Diego Comic-Con International, so there is some background ambience, shall we say. It’s a little different to the norm, but then isn’t that what you’d expect of a wine-tasting podcast?

Episode 142 – Action Lab Roundtable Discussion at SDCC!

by Chris Thompson

With Nick Marino, Daniel Arruda Massa, Josh Henaman & friends …
 
After last week’s jam-packed show with Matt Hawkins, Andres Salazar and Christian Beranek, this time I’m back for an Action Lab roundtable discussion featuring Nick Marino & Daniel Arruda Massa (Holy F*cked) and Josh Henaman (Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman) – plus special guests Rob Harrington (Rainbowbeard) and Jared Sams (Space Negro).
 
Over a few tasty beverages on the roof of San Diego’s Stone Brewing Co. we discuss what the guys are working on right now, the state of comics today, and whatever else comes to mind. It’s the kind of chaos you’ve come to expect in a climate that can only be described as idyllic!
