Episode 24 – Getting Ugly with Ken Kristensen & Ryan Estrada!

by Chris Thompson

With Ken Kristensen & Ryan Estrada …
 
Marvel Now! ends on a high (at least for us) with Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie’s Young Avengers #1, and Sam Humphries & Ron Garney’s Uncanny X-Force #1.
 
If that’s not enough, we also have TWO big interviews for you to enjoy … First up, I talk with Ken Kristensen, writer/co-creator of Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, which proved to be a surprise hit from Image Comics last week. We discuss the idea behind the book, how his collaboration with artist MK Perker came to be, and why Todd is more a crime book than anything else.
 
Then Taylor chats with creator Ryan Estrada, who is currently on the tail end of an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign for The Whole Story. They talk about comics, travel, Kickstarter success, and how to forge your own path in the industry today.

Episode 23 – Ghosthunting with Frank Barbiere!

by Chris Thompson

With Frank Barbiere …
 
It’s time for a savage review this week as we look at Frank Cho’s return to Marvel with Savage Wolverine #1. Did it claw its way to the top of the heap or simply drive us berserk? Find out now.
 
Then Taylor chats with writer Frank J. Barbiere, whose Five Ghosts series was recently picked up by Image Comics for a March release. They talk about the origin of the project, what it’s all about, and how to make a start in the industry today.

Episode 22 – Vacationing with Christian Ward!

by Chris Thompson

With Christian Ward …
 
This week Taylor and I are joined live in the studio by a very special guest, but first we take some time out to look at one of Marvel Now’s more controversial releases, The Superior Spider-Man #1 by Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman & Edgar Delgado. Were we caught up in its web or did it just leave us hanging? You’ll have to wait and see.
 
Then we have a long and sexy chat (his words, not mine!) with writer/artist Christian Ward who joined us at PCH headquarters to discuss this week’s bumper-sized conclusion to Infinite Vacation. We talk about storytelling, his collaboration with Nick Spencer, what makes him cry, and that all-important topic: process. How many times can one man say ‘sexy’ during an interview? Listen and find out.

Episode 21 – Christmas with Emma Ríos & Guillermo Ortego!

by Chris Thompson

With Emma Rios & Guillermo Ortego …
 
Although our look at Marvel Now! may be winding down, this week Taylor and I have the hotly anticipated (at least by us) Morbius The Living Vampire #1 from Joe Keatinge & Richard Elson and New Avengers #1 from Jonathan Hickman & Steve Epting to enjoy.
 
We also present the long-overdue Christmas/New Year Special I recorded with artists Emma Ríos and Guillermo Ortego at Malta Comic-Con last month. Aside from sharing beers and cracking jokes, we make fun of my poor attempts at Spanish; discuss techniques and how they got started in the industry; share our mutual love for Brandon Graham, David Aja, and classic Westerns; talk about what’s coming up next; and much, much more!
 
All that and we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the mind-blowingly strong Anarchist/Alchemist.

Episode 20 – Malta Comic-Con, Dave Gibbons & Herb Trimpe!

by Chris Thompson

With Dave Gibbons & Herb Trimpe …
 
This week I take a look back at the absolutely amazing Malta Comic-Con I’ve recently returned from – then Taylor & I discuss some of the gems found there, including Sean Azzopardi’s latest release Same Day Return.
 
We also present a very special panel I conducted with comics industry legends Dave Gibbons (Watchmen, Secret Service) and Herb Trimpe (The Incredible Hulk, G.I. Joe) where we find out what these two gents share in common and how they feel about being elder statesmen.
 
Plus we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the delicious Christmas Porter and Dead Pony Club.

Episode 19 – Changing with Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske!

by Chris Thompson

With Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske …
 
We’re a bit late this time around, but it’s not entirely hopeless as Taylor and I take a deeper look at Dennis Hopeless’ two contributions to Marvel Now! Avengers Arena #1 and Cable & X-Force #1.
 
Taylor also chats with Ales Kot (Wild Children) and Morgan Jeske (Disappearing Town) about working together on their new mini-series Change from Image Comics. Plus we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the rather potent Dogma.

Our First Drinks Sponsor Is … BrewDog!

by Chris Thompson

On the eve of recording our sixteenth episode, I’m pleased to announce that BrewDog Craft Beers have agreed to come on board as the first major drinks sponsor for the Pop Culture Hound podcast!
 
BrewDog will be supplying us with a fine selection of their unique craft beers into the new year, so each week you can look forward to some brief tasting notes alongside our regular comics commentary.
 
If you haven’t checked out BrewDog before then I highly recommend it. Aside from the obvious canine comparisons (BrewDOG and PopCultureHOUND) I like to think there’s a similar independent aesthetic behind our two enterprises.
 
You can read more about BrewDog, where you can buy it, and what they have to offer on their website: www.brewdog.com.
 
And be sure to tell ’em Chris sent you.
