Episode 148 – Return To Oz with Skottie Young!

by Chris Thompson

With Skottie Young …
 
Returning to the traditional model of Skype interviews, I pick up my conversation with writer/artist Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon, Giant-Size Little Marvel: AVX) after our initial meeting at SDCC back in July. If you haven’t already heard that, then you can listen to it here.
 
We discuss how Skottie ended up working on the Oz books with Eric Shanower, what he thinks about all the Marvel variant covers, and take a brief glimpse at his new series I Hate Fairyland. There’s definitely more to be discussed, so look for a follow-up (and a related special) soon.

Episode 97 – The Dark Engine of Ryan Burton & John Bivens!

by Chris Thompson

With Ryan Burton & John Bivens …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Justin Jordan (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with Ryan Burton & John Bivens, the creative team behind this week’s Dark Engine #1 from Image Comics.
 
Ryan & I chat about his background, what it takes to get published, and how he maintains writing alongside his regular job and a young family – then John joins us to discuss how they first met, what their work process is like, and what people can expect from Dark Engine as it continues.

Episode 96 – Putting on a Spread with Justin Jordan!

by Chris Thompson

With Justin Jordan …
 
After last week’s chat with Clifford Meth (which you can still listen to here), this time around I catch up with writer Justin Jordan to discuss his new series Spread from Image Comics.
 
Justin & I talk about what comics mean to him, how he first broke into the industry (hint: it involves a lot of hard work), what people can expect from Spread going forward, and what else he’s got coming up. It’s packed with advice for creators looking to find the right balance and approach to work.

Episode 26 – Hanging with Michel Fiffe & Christopher Sebela!

by Chris Thompson

With Michel Fiffe & Chris Sebela …
 
Occasionally we miss stuff first time around (I know! We’re as shocked as you are), so this week Taylor & I take a look at the second printing of Django Unchained #1 from Vertigo/DC Comics. It’s an adaptation of Tarantino’s full script for the film by R.M. Guéra, Jason Latour & friends.
 
We also have TWO very exciting interviews for you to enjoy once again … First up, Taylor chats with Michel Fiffe (Copra, Zegas, Deathzone) about self-publishing, breaking the Kirby barrier, and much more.
 
Then I talk with writer Christopher Sebela (Screamland, Captain Marvel), who has just released High Crimes #1 through Monkeybrain Comics. We discuss how he started out, what avenues are available to creators, and how a network of Chrisses might just rule the world.

Episode 4 – with Eliza Frye, Sarah Becan & The 315!

by Chris Thompson


With Eliza Frye, Sarah Becan & The 315 …
 
This episode continues my aural adventures at San Diego Comic-Con 2012.
 
First up, I chat with independent creators Eliza Frye and Sarah Becan who were both able to publish their latest work through successful Kickstarter campaigns.
 
Taylor and I then peel back the layers of the books (Regalia and Shuteye) only to discover – yet again – that we’ve approached them from different angles.
 
Finally, I present my lengthy interview with Matt Heistand and Dan Fifield of the ThreeOneFive at the rather noisy Dick’s Last Resort. We discuss their web series Deep Dive Daredevils, working on back-ups for Joe Keatinge’s Hell Yeah! and why it takes three guys to write a comic.
