Episode 99 – A Very Goon-ish Occasion with Eric Powell!

by Chris Thompson

With Eric Powell …
 
Following on from last week’s chat with Charles Brownstein of the CBLDF (which you can still listen to here), this time around I’m back with The Goon creator, Eric Powell, to discuss his new mini-series Occasion Of Revenge.
 
Eric & I discuss how he started out in comics, the changes in his work and influences since that time, how to stay motivated and on top of things when ‘life happens’, and what people can expect from the series going forward. It’s a very frank and honest look at the creative life – and what that entails.

Episode 81 – Hellboy Day with Mike Richardson & Friends!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Richardson & Friends …
 
Following on from this week’s chat with Mike Mignola (which can still be heard here) – I continue the Hellboy Day celebrations with Dark Horse Publisher Mike Richardson, Mouse Guard‘s David Petersen, and editor Scott Allie – as well as Maura McHugh & Kim Newman, who have just been announced as writers on the new Witchfinder series from Dark Horse Comics!
 
We chat about what Mike’s work, particularly on Hellboy, means to each of them personally; how it affects what they’re doing now; and what else they have coming up. It’s a fitting tribute to a man and a character who have endured so long, as well as spotlighting how that legacy has impacted others.

Episode 80 – Celebrating Hellboy Day with Mike Mignola!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Mignola …
 
After last week’s chat with Jai Nitz (which you can still listen to here), this time I check back in with Mike Mignola on the eve of Hellboy Day. Mike & I first spoke on the landmark 50th episode a few months back (which you can find right here), so it was a pleasure to speak again.
 
Mike & I discuss how he feels after twenty years, why he still struggles with confidence in his work, what he still wants to achieve, and why Dave Stewart is the best colorist in comics. It’s the perfect way to celebrate 20 years of Hellboy from Mike Mignola & Dark Horse Comics.

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.
