Episode 116 – In Conversation with Kurtis Wiebe & Friends!

by Chris Thompson

With Kurtis Wiebe & Friends …
 
On this week’s show I sit down for a pint with acclaimed writer Kurtis Wiebe (Rat Queens, Peter Panzerfaust, and the upcoming Pisces) who is in town for this weekend’s Demon Con in Maidstone, Kent.
 
Kurtis & I are joined by his partner Shannon Woodhouse, who runs the successful merchandise/clothing line at RatQueens.com – and Maria Norris, a PhD candidate who has been doing some excellent work on Comics & Human Rights for the London School of Economics blog.
 
Together we discuss the future of Rat Queens, the problem of unflattering clothing fits, how body image (and other issues) affect both men and women, and what else he has coming up in the near future. It’s a fun and relaxed interview conducted in the way they all should be – over drinks!

Episode 93 – Enormous Undertakings with Tim Daniel!

by Chris Thompson

With Tim Daniel …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Sina Grace & Daniel Freedman (which you can still listen to here), this time around I’m back with Tim Daniel, who recently appeared on the show with Jeremy Holt.
 
Tim & I discuss the route he took breaking into comics, how design (and designers) have become a more focal part of the comics medium, what he’s learned between releasing the Enormous one-shot and the new ongoing series, and all the other things he has on his plate right now. It’s a fascinating look at how design is asserting itself in comics and allowing people to do more than they ever dreamed.

Episode 37 – Taking Flight with Kurtis Wiebe!

by Chris Thompson

With Kurtis Wiebe …
 
This week Taylor & I turn our attention to the highly-anticipated Jupiter’s Legacy from Image Comics. Will this be Mark Millar, Frank Quitely & Peter Doherty’s legacy, or is it just another flash in the Millar pan? Find out why we were so divided in our opinion.
 
Plus we take an in-depth look at Paul Tobin & Colleen Coover’s charming new Eisner-nominated series Bandette – and give a shout-out to Gregg Taylor & Dean Kotz’s Mask Of The Red Panda – both from the exceptional folks at Monkeybrain Comics.
 
If that’s not enough, we also chat with writer Kurtis J. Wiebe about his work. Kurtis & I discuss the pitching process, why the writer/artist relationship is so important, how writing comics can lead to some unexpected places, and what the future holds. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the writer’s journey and what happens when you ‘get there’.
