Episode 113 – Meeting Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko!

by Chris Thompson

With Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko …
 
Following on from last episode with Leah Moore & John Reppion discussing Electricomics (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back with the stellar team of Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko (Heathentown, Planet of the Apes, the upcoming Invisible Republic) at the recent Malta Comic Con.
 
Gabriel, Corinna and I discuss how they each started out, when they first met, what prompted them to start working together, and what they’ve got coming up next. It’s a unique glimpse into a rich and creative partnership!

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.

by Chris Thompson

With Jeremy Holt & Tim Daniel …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Joshua Williamson & Brian Churilla recorded live at ECCC (which you can still listen to here), this time around I return to my regular programming to welcome back Jeremy Holt, who last appeared on the show way back in Episode 31.
 
Jeremy & I discuss what he’s been working on in the time since, juggling the work/life/comics balance, how he came to be doing two books for Monkeybrain Comics, and delve back into last year’s Twitter controversy about paying artists. It’s an insightful glimpse into the realities and struggles involved when you choose to #makecomics!
 
Then we’re joined by one of Jeremy’s collaborators, Tim Daniel, to chat about their new series Skinned. We look at how they met, what influences they bring to the project, and some of the themes they plan to explore.

Episode 85 – Sifting Through The Remains with Cullen Bunn!

by Chris Thompson

With Cullen Bunn …
 
Following on from last week’s chat with Iron Fist‘s Kaare Andrews (which you can still listen to here) – this time around I catch up with prolific writer Cullen Bunn (Magneto, Sinestro, The Sixth Gun) to talk about the many books he’s doing, including The Remains from Monkeybrain Comics!
 
We talk about how he started out (both in prose and in comics), what he’s learned from working on so many different titles at the same time, how he approaches each new project, and why he loves Survivor as much as I do! (Hint: it’s kinda like what wrestling is for others.)

Episode 61 – In Bed with Ulises Farinas & Erick Freitas!

by Chris Thompson

With Ulises Farinas & Erick Freitas …
 
After last week’s chat with The Lost Boy‘s Greg Ruth (which you can still listen to here) and my recent film podcast with Before Midnight‘s Graham Reynolds (which you can listen to here) I climb into bed for an intimate discussion with writer/artist Ulises Farinas & his co-writer Erick Freitas (Gamma, Catalyst Comix, Amazing Forest).
 
It’s one of my rawest and funniest interviews to date, and it provides a nice insight into their process, as well as what happens when I get beaten at my own game …
 
Along the way we discuss Twilight, Ryan Gosling, where & how they met, the enduring appeal of anthologies, and why Monkeybrain was the right fit for them.

by Chris Thompson

With Art Baltazar & Franco …
 
How do you follow up last week’s revelations about Sam Humphries and his MySpace years? (which you can listen to here) … It’s not gonna be easy, but if anyone’s up to the task it’s Art Baltazar & Franco (Tiny Titans, Superman Family Adventures, Patrick The Wolf Boy) – the masterminds behind the revolutionary Aw Yeah Comics.
 
We discuss what brought them together, why this is their industry, what it takes to actually make comics, and how their latest book Itty Bitty Hellboy from Dark Horse Comics came to be. It’s an engaging and inspirational chat which looks at how to overcome setbacks and really make this your industry.
