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!!!

by Chris Thompson

With Scott Synder …
 
Following on from my last episode with the legendary Carlos Pacheco at NICE Convention in Bedford (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back just in time for the holidays with the long-awaited follow-up to Episode 100 with Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire, Wytches).
 
Scott and I discuss the overwhelming response to Wytches, his future plans for Batman, what teaching means to him as a writer, and address a few of the rumours he’s been attached to lately. If you only listen to one podcast this year then you’ve been missing out!

Episode 48 – Going West with Michael Moreci & Drew Zucker!

by Chris Thompson

With Michael Moreci & Drew Zucker …
 
This week I have a special guest co-host in the form of ‘That Fred Girl’ Nicole Rodrigues. First up we take cover with Ed Brisson, Johnnie Christmas & Shari Chankhamma’s Sheltered #1 from Image Comics; then take a shot at Si Spurrier & Jeff Stokely’s Six-Gun Gorilla #2 from Boom Studios. From there we scare up some discussion about Joshua Williamson & Goran Sudzuka’s Ghosted #1 from Image/Skybound Entertainment; and discuss Michael Moreci & Drew Zucker’s brutal Western saga Skybreaker from Monkeybrain Comics.
 
If that’s not enough I also chat with Michael & Drew about their work on Skybreaker, and what the experience has taught them so far. We delve into their approach to the old West, why it ended up at Monkeybrain, how long it takes to work on each issue, and what’s coming up next. Plus, as part of our live recording at the Silver Snail in Toronto, I chat with actress Trenna Keating who was there to meet fans of her new Syfy series, Defiance. It’s a jam-packed episode and things are only getting bigger as we head towards SDCC next week!

Episode 47 – Comics as a Catalyst with Joe Casey!

by Chris Thompson

With Joe Casey …
 
It’s a big week as Taylor & I tackle not one, not two, not three, but FOUR hot new books. First up we take a look at Jeremy Holt & Kevin Zeigler’s After Houdini #1; then dive into Ryan K. Lindsay & Daniel Logan’s Ghost Town #2 from Action Lab’s Danger Zone imprint; and finally turn our attention to Rachel Deering & Chris Mooneyham’s Anthema #1-3 from comiXology Submit. But it doesn’t end there, we also delve into Joe Casey, Dan McDaid, Paul Maybury & Ulises Farinas’ Catalyst Comix #1 from Dark Horse Comics.
 
We then bid a fond farewell to Taylor, who is moving on to other things, and chat with Catalyst Comix writer Joe Casey. We talk in-depth about his work with Man Of Action, what it’s like to juggle comics & television, his ongoing fascination with superheroes, and what keeps him coming back to comics. Plus we get his opinion on The Big Two, digital comics, the direct market, and more. If you’re keen to explore the medium and challenge your point of view, then it’s fascinating stuff.

Episode 42 – The Meaning of Life with Matt Rebholz!

by Chris Thompson

With Matt Rebholz …
 
This week Taylor & I go for the trifecta once again with another three new, and very different, books. First up we take a bite out of Mike Mignola, Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá’s BPRD: Vampire #3 from Dark Horse Comics. Then we sneak a peek at Brian K. Vaughan & Marcos Martin’s The Private Eye #2 from Panel Syndicate.
 
From there we turn our gaze towards Matt Rebholz’s trippy series, The Astronomer. Matt & I chat about the creative process, how one man can work the Marvel method, the benefits of Kickstarter, and what it takes to publish on your own. If you’ve never heard of Matt before then you’re not alone, but once you’ve seen his art you’ll be as impressed as I was.
