Episode 107 – Talking Bare Bones with Jeff Smith!

by Chris Thompson

With Jeff Smith …
 
Following on from last week’s very special episode with Scott McCloud & Dave Gibbons (which you can still listen to here), this week I present my panel with Jeff Smith (Bone, RASL, Tuki: Save The Humans) from the recent Lakes International Comic Art Festival.
 
Jeff & I discuss how he started out, the kind of comics that inspired him growing up, what it takes to craft a satisfying story, how he feels about Bone being one of the most banned books in America, and where he sees himself going next.

Episode 98 – Comics & the CBLDF with Charles Brownstein!

by Chris Thompson

With Charles Brownstein …
 
After last episode with Dark Engine‘s Ryan Burton & John Bivens (which you can listen to here), I’m finally back with Charles Brownstein, Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF).
 
Charles & I discuss his background in comics, how he ended up working for the Fund, what the organisation stands for, and some of the current problems they are facing. It’s a fascinating glimpse into a vital, yet often overlooked, aspect of the comics medium.
