Episode 120 – With Georgia Webber & Breakdown Press!

by Chris Thompson

With Georgia Webber & Breakdown Press …
 
As a follow-up to our memories of Angoulême (which you can still listen to here), we continue our coverage of this year’s Festival by checking in with Georgia Webber (creator of The Dumb Project) as well as Orbital alumni, Simon & Tom, who are the brains behind the excellent Breakdown Press.
 
Georgia and I discuss how The Dumb Project came to be, what it was like losing her voice, the ways in which she’s learned to deal with that, and how she found Angoulême BD Festival as a first-time attendee.
 
Then Simon, Tom and I chat about their experience tabling at Angoulême for the first time. We look at how their publishing roster has grown, the response they’ve had so far, and take a peek at what’s coming up next.

Episode 98 – Comics & the CBLDF with Charles Brownstein!

by Chris Thompson

With Charles Brownstein …
 
After last episode with Dark Engine‘s Ryan Burton & John Bivens (which you can listen to here), I’m finally back with Charles Brownstein, Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF).
 
Charles & I discuss his background in comics, how he ended up working for the Fund, what the organisation stands for, and some of the current problems they are facing. It’s a fascinating glimpse into a vital, yet often overlooked, aspect of the comics medium.

Episode 53 – Making A Sacrifice with Sam Humphries!

by Chris Thompson

With Sam Humphries …
 
Hot on the heels of last week’s interview with rising star Joshua Williamson (which you can find here), I chat with another burgeoning talent in the form of Sam Humphries (Our Love Is Real, Uncanny X-Force, Avengers: A.I.) whose self-published series Sacrifice is collected by Dark Horse Comics this week.
 
We talk about how he was destined for comics, why self-publishing is so important, discovering your limitations, and what makes Sacrifice such a personal work. It’s a fun and interesting discussion about what it takes to make it in comics and how it can sometimes take years to be an overnight success.
