Episode 148 – Return To Oz with Skottie Young!

by Chris Thompson

With Skottie Young …
 
Returning to the traditional model of Skype interviews, I pick up my conversation with writer/artist Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon, Giant-Size Little Marvel: AVX) after our initial meeting at SDCC back in July. If you haven’t already heard that, then you can listen to it here.
 
We discuss how Skottie ended up working on the Oz books with Eric Shanower, what he thinks about all the Marvel variant covers, and take a brief glimpse at his new series I Hate Fairyland. There’s definitely more to be discussed, so look for a follow-up (and a related special) soon.

Episode 138 – In Conversation with Skottie Young at SDCC!

by Chris Thompson

With Skottie Young at SDCC …
 
After last week’s Ant-Man review, plus the Traditional vs. Digital Art panel from NICE convention, this week I’m back with the first part of my SDCC coverage as I chat in the bar at the Hilton Bayfront with the incredible Skottie Young!
 
In what has become the first of at least two parts, Skottie & I discuss his background in comics, how he broke into the industry, the path his career has taken, and how he feels about it now. The sound is a little challenging at times, but well worth it to hear us chat in this relaxed atmosphere!

by Chris Thompson

With Maria Norris & Secret Wars …
 
Following on from the recent chaos of Nick Marino & Daniel Arruda Massa, this week I’m back with Maria Norris as The Real/Fake Geeks take on Jonathan Hickman‘s epic Secret Wars!
 
To coincide with this year’s Free Comic Book Day, we look at what you need to know going into this major Marvel event. Plus we discuss Marvel’s FCBD offerings and take a look at the new Marvel Previews in an effort to make sense of it all. If that’s not enough, we also share our thoughts on Avengers: Age Of Ultron and how it relates to us as comics fans.

Episode 115 – Chatting with Mast, Dayglo, Dialynas & Walta!

by Chris Thompson

With JL Mast, Rufus Dayglo, Mike Dialynas & Gabriel Hernandez Walta …
 
Following on from last episode with Doctor Who‘s Mike Collins (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with the New Europe panel from the recent Malta Comic Con – featuring JL Mast, Rufus Dayglo, Michael Dialynas & Gabriel Hernandez Walta.
 
Mast, Rufus, Mike, Gabriel & I get into a fascinating discussion about the unique influences European creators bring to American comics; the wealth of opportunities now available to them; and how the comics scene in general is changing. It’s a wonderful insight from four very different creators and how they approach their work on a day-to-day basis!

by Chris Thompson

With Carlos Pacheco …
 
After last episode’s reading and discussion with The Unwritten‘s Mike Carey (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back for a very special career retrospective featuring legendary Marvel & DC creator Carlos Pacheco at the most recent NICE Convention in Bedford.
 
Carlos and I look back at his early days in Spain, how he eventually cracked the elusive American market, what challenges he’s faced along the way, and where he’s hoping to go next.

by Chris Thompson

With Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with the ever-popular and interesting Greg Ruth (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back with the dynamic duo of Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie for the Wicked + Divine panel from the recent Dublin International Comic Expo (aka D.I.C.E.)
 
We discuss the origins of the series, what readers can expect from the book coming up, the kind of themes they’re looking to explore, and we begin to scratch the surface of the mysterious Gillen/McKelvie partnership.

Episode 103 – Rios, Sampson & Lafuente LIVE from D.I.C.E!

by Chris Thompson

With Emma Rios, Alison Sampson & David Lafuente …
 
Following on from last week’s episode ‘live’ at the pub with the hilarious Gerry Duggan (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with artists Emma Rios, Alison Sampson & David Lafuente for the insightful European Influence in American Comics panel from last weekend’s Dublin International Comic Expo (aka D.I.C.E.)
 
The discussion starts on the convention panel with Emma, Alison, David and myself – then continues later on back at the hotel over a few drinks. What starts as an exploration of the European Influence on American Comics quickly becomes a fascinating journey into art, identity, culture, and the labels society can place on you. I promise you’ve never heard a panel quite like this before!

Episode 102 – Live From The Pub with Gerry Duggan!

by Chris Thompson

With Gerry Duggan …
 
After last week’s slightly different Episode 101 with the amazing Greg Ruth (which you can still listen to here), this time around I’m back – in the pub – with writer Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova, Hulk, The Infinite Horizon).
 
Listen as Gerry & I enjoy beer, peanuts & the obligatory pork scratchings; while discussing how he got started, what it’s like going from the comic shop to the bullpen, the kind of collaborations he enjoys, and what we can expect from him coming up … All backed by the live ‘ambience’ of the pub!

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 84 – Forging an Iron Fist with Kaare Andrews!

by Chris Thompson

With Kaare Andrews …
 
After last week’s chat with Rick Remender (which you can still listen to here), this time I catch up with writer/artist/all-round-creator-and-good-guy Kaare Andrews (The Incredible Hulk, A + X, Spider-Man: Reign) to talk about his run on Iron Fist which begins this week from Marvel Comics.
 
Kaare & I talk about everything from auteur theory to childhood comicbook memories – taking in groupthink, the debate over San Diego Comic-Con, the difference between comics and films, and why there aren’t more writer/artists these days. It’s a fun and fascinating discussion that will hopefully leave you thinking …
