Episode 94 – Caught in the Undertow with Steve Orlando!

by Chris Thompson

With Steve Orlando …
 
It’s been a little while since the last episode with Tim Daniel (which you can still listen to here), but this time I’m back to chat with up-and-coming writer Steve Orlando about his hit mini-series Undertow, which had its penultimate issue this week from Image Comics.
 
Steve and I discuss breaking into comics, how he teamed up with Artyom Trakhanov, what the pitch process was like for Undertow, how he makes ends meet outside of comics, and what else he’s working on right now.

Episode 82 – Restarting Jan’s Atomic Hearts with Simon Roy!

by Chris Thompson

With Simon Roy …
 
After last week’s Hellboy Day specials with Mike Mignola and friends (which you can still listen to here), this time around I catch up with rising star Simon Roy (Prophet, Murder Book, Jan’s Atomic Heart) ahead of this week’s Emerald City Comicon.
 
Simon & I discuss how he first broke into comics, working on Prophet with Brandon Graham and The Field with Ed Brisson, as well as the perils and pitfalls of making your early work available again. It’s a great chat with a young writer/artist whose career is on an upward trajectory!

Episode 79 – Rediscovering the Dream Thief with Jai Nitz!

by Chris Thompson

With Jai Nitz …
 
After last week’s chat with Greg Rucka (which you can still listen to here), this time I catch up with Jai Nitz (Green Hornet, Paper Museum, El Diablo) who wrote my favourite mini-series of last year, Dream Thief, which has just been released in trade this week from Dark Horse Comics.
 
Jai & I discuss how he first broke into comics, what makes a good editor, the advantages (and disadvantages) that new creators face, and what’s coming up next for him & Dream Thief. It’s a great conversation with one of the hardest-working guys you may not yet know!
