Episode 43 – Behold a Dark Horse with Scott Allie!

by Chris Thompson

With Scott Allie …
 
It’s a slightly shorter episode this week as I’ve just returned from the amazing 2D Comic Arts Festival in Derry, Northern Ireland. You can expect a full report on that soon, but in the meantime I’m pleased to present a very special interview with Dark Horse Comics Editor-in-Chief, Scott Allie.
 
Aside from being very generous and helpful to the show, Scott is the editor of the Mignola-verse line of books (which he has done for almost two decades) and is currently writing the Abe Sapien ongoing series with creator Mike Mignola. Scott & I chat about how he landed the role, his working relationship with Mike, what challenges they’ve faced as the line has expanded, and where they plan to take Abe in future. It’s a fascinating discussion that I hope will be the first of many.

Episode 34 – Basking In The Glory of Joe Keatinge!

by Chris Thompson

With Joe Keatinge …
 
It’s one of the saddest and most poignant episodes so far as Taylor & I say farewell to Joe Keatinge, Ross Campbell & Owen Gieni’s Glory with issue 34 from Image Comics. But it’s not all sadness and misery, as there’s also a new beginning for Mike Mignola, Scott Allie & Sebastian Fiumara‘s Abe Sapien with an ongoing issue 1 from Dark Horse Comics.
 
Plus we have an exclusive chat with Joe Keatinge about the end of Glory. Was it an untimely demise or did things go exactly as planned? Joe & I also look back at how he got to this point, what the future holds, the status of Hell Yeah, and the appeal of wrestling. It’s a great insight into an exciting writer with a clear idea of who he is and where he’s going.
