Episode 133 – In Conversation with Declan Shalvey!

by Chris Thompson

With Declan Shalvey …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Jason Latour, this week I’m back with Declan Shalvey (Deadpool, Moon Knight, Injection) for the launch of his exhibition in the Orbital Gallery.
 
Declan & I discuss how he broke into comics, the perils and pitfalls of social media, his approach to work these days, and how he continues to push himself as an artist. It’s a wonderful glimpse behind the curtain with someone who knows what it’s like to work hard and experience success.

Episode 46 – Things Get Massive with Brian Wood!

by Chris Thompson

With Brian Wood …
 
This week Taylor & I go in-depth with three new, and very distinct, books. First up we tackle Adam Egypt Mortimer & Darick Robertson’s Ballistic #1 from Black Mask Studios; then delve into Tommie Kelly’s latest webcomic saga Them; and finally turn our attention to Brian Wood, Garry Brown & Jordie Bellaire’s The Massive #13 from Dark Horse Comics. Plus we give shout-outs to Matthew Craig & Jesse Young, two up-and-coming creators who are doing interesting things.
 
If that’s not enough I also chat with the man himself, Brian Wood, about his work on The Massive and beyond. We delve into his approach to writing, what interests him as a creator, whether he prefers single characters or team books, and how creator-owned work differs from work-for-hire. Plus we answer questions about his work on Star Wars, which books he’s reading, and what it’s like working on big event titles such as the upcoming Battle Of The Atom from Marvel Comics.

Episode 44 – Getting Mired Down with Becky Cloonan!

by Chris Thompson

With Becky Cloonan …
 
Taylor & I continue our look at this year’s Eisner nominees with a focus on the self-published work of Becky Cloonan. Becky is nominated in the category of Best Single Issue for The Mire, and has just released her latest mini-comic, Demeter, through her own Ink & Thunder label. We look at the two books in detail and discuss why we love Cloonan’s work so much. It’s perfect timing as this week also sees the release of her latest project, The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, from Dark Horse Comics. You can hear a full review of Killjoys #1, along with a very special interview, next week.
 
If that’s not enough, Becky also drops in to discuss her work and process, particularly when it comes to self-publishing. We look at her early days producing mini-comics with the Meathaus collective, how her approach differs from black & white to color, the overall writing and scripting process, what it means to be nominated for an Eisner, and her collaboration with Gerard Way & Shaun Simon on The Killjoys. It’s a great opportunity to understand the creative process from the point where writing and art meet.
