Episode 134 – In Conversation with Matthew Rosenberg!

by Chris Thompson

With Matthew Rosenberg …
 
After last week’s chat with Injection‘s Declan Shalvey, this week I’m back with writer & Black Mask PR guru Matthew Rosenberg (We Can Never Go Home, 12 Reasons To Die, Secret Wars Journal) to discuss the stages of his career thus far.
 
Matthew & I chat about the crossover between comics and music, how he works with writing partner Patrick Kindlon, his own background in comics, and what he’s working on for Black Mask (and others) right now.

Episode 40 – Telling Stories with Gabriel Hardman!

by Chris Thompson

With Gabriel Hardman …
 
There’s a trifecta of great titles for Taylor & I to look at this week, plus one very special mention. First up, we keep ourselves occupied with Occupy Comics #1 from fledgling publisher Black Mask Studios. Then we take a look Mike Garley & Martin Simmonds’ Eponymous #1, which debuted as part of the recent VS Comics Anthology.
 
From there we turn our attention to the first issue of Gabriel Hardman’s solo effort Kinski from Monkeybrain Comics. Gabriel & I discuss the art of storyboarding, how the collaborative process differs, applying the 180-degree rule, and what themes can be explored in the relationship between a man and his dog. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the life of a creator equally at home behind the drawing board or on the film set.
 
If that’s not enough we also take a quick peek at Michael May & Jason Copland’s Kill All Monsters webcomic which was successfully funded for a print edition on Kickstarter last week. Kaiju monsters and giant mech-suits … What more could you want?

Episode 25 – Raging with Tom Morello & Matt Miner!

by Chris Thompson

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.

Episode 17 – Talking Comics with Jim Zub & Matt Pizzolo!

by Chris Thompson

With Jim Zub & Matt Pizzolo …
 
This week saw some rather interesting discussion and commentary after Jim Zubkavich (Skullkickers) did a post on his blog about The Reality of Mainstream Creator-Owned Comics. In the same week, Wired.com did a feature on Matt Pizzolo (Occupy Comics) who they referred to as World’s Most Wired Comics Creator.
 
I found them to be two clever, and potentially quite different, views of comics – so I tweeted the links to all who would listen, and was pleasantly surprised when first Matt and then Jim decided to tweet back. We chatted and I soon knew it had to be a podcast, even if we were spread across three different time-zones (GMT, EST & PST!)
 
So I’m pleased to present this very special episode, outside of our regular transmissions, with Jim Zub & Matt Pizzolo in conversation.
