by Chris Thompson

With Sepideh Jodeyri & Miss Lasko-Gross …
 
After last week’s chat with Dave Gibbons (which you can still listen to here), this time I shine the spotlight on two incredible & inspiring women: Sepideh Jodeyri (Persian translator of Blue Is The Warmest Colour) and Miss Lasko-Gross (creator of the graphic novel, Henni, from Z2 Comics).

And in the second part, Miss and I discuss her early years as a cartoonist, the differences between cultural and religious identity, juggling a work-life-creative balance, and how she feels about the new Fantastic Four movie.

Episode 85 – Sifting Through The Remains with Cullen Bunn!

by Chris Thompson

With Cullen Bunn …
 
Following on from last week’s chat with Iron Fist‘s Kaare Andrews (which you can still listen to here) – this time around I catch up with prolific writer Cullen Bunn (Magneto, Sinestro, The Sixth Gun) to talk about the many books he’s doing, including The Remains from Monkeybrain Comics!
 
We talk about how he started out (both in prose and in comics), what he’s learned from working on so many different titles at the same time, how he approaches each new project, and why he loves Survivor as much as I do! (Hint: it’s kinda like what wrestling is for others.)

Episode 77 – Entering The Bunker with Joshua Hale Fialkov!

by Chris Thompson

With Joshua Hale Fialkov …
 
After the conclusion of my Angoulême Festival coverage with Paul Pope, Natalie Nourigat & Nicholas Hitori De (which you can still listen to here) – we return to our regularly scheduled programming this week with writer Joshua Hale Fialkov (Echoes, Skyman, The Bunker).
 
In what proves to be a rather frank (and lengthy) interview, Joshua opens up about how he got started, the personal trials and tribulations that have shaped his writing, and how he sees the industry today. It’s an entertaining & interesting discussion that I’d encourage everyone to hang around for.
