With Tom Morello & Matt Miner …
This week Taylor & I have an in-depth discussion about Dark Horse Comics’ Orchid, which reaches its stunning conclusion with issue 12 this week. It’s a book deserving of a wider audience, so if you missed the original run of the series you can still pick it up in trades.
We also have TWO very exciting interviews for you to enjoy this week … First up, I chat with Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) about writing Orchid, taking the leap into comics, why comics are a perfect medium for activism, and much more.
Then I talk with animal activist Matt Miner, who is currently on the tail end of an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign for Liberator. We discuss his Scott Snyder connection, what it’s like to work on your first comic, how people can help the cause, and other ways to ‘Kickstart’ a revolution.
