Episode 140 – Nick & Zack Keller, Chris Emgard & many more!

by Chris Thompson

With Nick & Zack Keller, Chris Emgard, Man Vs. Rock, Phil Kim & Jason Lenzi …
 
After last week’s SDCC round-up with James, Liz & Karl, it’s time for a jam-packed SDCC extravaganza as I sit down to chat with Nick & Zack Keller (Death Head), Chris Emgard (Mirror’s Edge: Exordium), Victor De Troy & Kevin Bieber (Man Vs. Rock), Phil Kim (Famous Monsters) and Jason Lenzi (co-founder of Bif Bang Pow!) – whew!
 
First up I spend time at the Dark Horse stand with Nick & Zack, followed by Chris; then I discover Victor & Kevin in the Small Press aisles; meet up with Phil at the Famous Monsters/American Gothic Press booth; and finish off at the Entertainment Earth booth with Jason. It’s a wonderful and varied series of talks with as much depth as we could manage in the time.

Episode 105 – Wicked Kieron Gillen & Divine Jamie McKelvie!

by Chris Thompson

With Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with the ever-popular and interesting Greg Ruth (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back with the dynamic duo of Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie for the Wicked + Divine panel from the recent Dublin International Comic Expo (aka D.I.C.E.)
 
We discuss the origins of the series, what readers can expect from the book coming up, the kind of themes they’re looking to explore, and we begin to scratch the surface of the mysterious Gillen/McKelvie partnership.

Episode 103 – Rios, Sampson & Lafuente LIVE from D.I.C.E!

by Chris Thompson

With Emma Rios, Alison Sampson & David Lafuente …
 
Following on from last week’s episode ‘live’ at the pub with the hilarious Gerry Duggan (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with artists Emma Rios, Alison Sampson & David Lafuente for the insightful European Influence in American Comics panel from last weekend’s Dublin International Comic Expo (aka D.I.C.E.)
 
The discussion starts on the convention panel with Emma, Alison, David and myself – then continues later on back at the hotel over a few drinks. What starts as an exploration of the European Influence on American Comics quickly becomes a fascinating journey into art, identity, culture, and the labels society can place on you. I promise you’ve never heard a panel quite like this before!

Episode 102 – Live From The Pub with Gerry Duggan!

by Chris Thompson

With Gerry Duggan …
 
After last week’s slightly different Episode 101 with the amazing Greg Ruth (which you can still listen to here), this time around I’m back – in the pub – with writer Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova, Hulk, The Infinite Horizon).
 
Listen as Gerry & I enjoy beer, peanuts & the obligatory pork scratchings; while discussing how he got started, what it’s like going from the comic shop to the bullpen, the kind of collaborations he enjoys, and what we can expect from him coming up … All backed by the live ‘ambience’ of the pub!
