Episode 143 – In Conversation with Steve Orlando at SDCC!

by Chris Thompson

With Steve Orlando at SDCC …
 
On this week’s show, I’m joined by James & Liz for a wine-tasting under the guidance of writer Steve Orlando (Undertow, Virgil). Steve discusses the finer points of Californian pinot gris, then opens up about how he got the job on Midnighter at DC Comics, what plans he has for the series, and how his own experiences have informed the character.
 
This interview was conducted at an outdoor restaurant during the madness of San Diego Comic-Con International, so there is some background ambience, shall we say. It’s a little different to the norm, but then isn’t that what you’d expect of a wine-tasting podcast?

Episode 142 – Action Lab Roundtable Discussion at SDCC!

by Chris Thompson

With Nick Marino, Daniel Arruda Massa, Josh Henaman & friends …
 
After last week’s jam-packed show with Matt Hawkins, Andres Salazar and Christian Beranek, this time I’m back for an Action Lab roundtable discussion featuring Nick Marino & Daniel Arruda Massa (Holy F*cked) and Josh Henaman (Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman) – plus special guests Rob Harrington (Rainbowbeard) and Jared Sams (Space Negro).
 
Over a few tasty beverages on the roof of San Diego’s Stone Brewing Co. we discuss what the guys are working on right now, the state of comics today, and whatever else comes to mind. It’s the kind of chaos you’ve come to expect in a climate that can only be described as idyllic!

With Matt Hawkins, Andres Salazar & Christian Beranek …
 
Following last week’s SDCC extravaganza with Nick & Zack Keller, Chris Emgard, Man Vs. Rock, Phil Kim and Jason Lenzi, I’m back with another jam-packed episode featuring Top Cow’s Matt Hawkins (Think Tank, Tales Of Honor), Andres Salazar (Pariah, Missouri) and Christian Beranek (Validation) at San Diego Comic-Con International!

by Chris Thompson

With Dustgin Nguyen, Owen Johnson & John Pearson …
 
After last week’s Angoulême BD Festival special, this time I’m back with the incredible Dustin Nguyen to discuss his exciting new sci-fi series, Descender, from Image Comics.
 
Dustin and I discuss how he started out, the way his art has changed and evolved over time, what it’s like writing scripts as opposed to drawing comics, and how he approaches realism in a series like Descender.
 
Plus, as an extra bonus, I chat with creators Owen Michael Johnson & John Pearson about their new project, Beast Wagon, which is currently on Kickstarter. We discuss how they met, where the idea came from, and what they’ve got planned.

PCH @ The Movies – Beyond Clueless with Charlie Lyne!

by Chris Thompson

With Charlie Lyne, writer/director of Beyond Clueless …
 
After my original film-based podcast with Graham Reynolds to discuss his work scoring Richard Linklater’s brilliant Before Midnight (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with director Charlie Lyne to examine his debut feature, Beyond Clueless. Narrated by The Craft‘s Fairuza Balk, the film offers an intelligent dissection of the teen film genre – peeling back the many layers to expose what lies beneath.
 
Charlie, known primarily for his work with Ultra Culture & The Guardian, has created a tight film that will leave you questioning the teen flicks you’ve previously taken for granted. Featuring a score by indie darlings Summer Camp, Beyond Clueless shines a light on this shadowy and less-explored aspect of cinema.
 
Charlie kindly agreed to chat with me about how he first started out as a film critic, what steps he took to make his dreams come true, and how he brought Beyond Clueless from concept to creation. It’s a fascinating glimpse into another world, but all done with the usual PCH flair and style. I hope you’ll join me on this new adventure into the world of film.

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.
