Episode 67 – Mike Carey & Sean Phillips at Malta Comic Con 2013!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Carey & Sean Phillips …
 
Following on from last week’s exclusive presentation of Alan Moore & Lance Parkin in conversation at The Princes Charles Cinema in London (which you can still listen to here) I bring you a couple of panels from this year’s Malta Comic Con, featuring Mike Carey & Sean Phillips.
 
First up, Mike & Sean take centre stage for A Meeting of Legends;
then Mike goes solo for a reading from his forthcoming novel, The Girl With All The Gifts, followed by a Q & A. It’s a wonderful glimpse into the lives, careers, and creative processes of two industry heavyweights.

Episode 66 – The Magic Words of Alan Moore & Lance Parkin!

by Chris Thompson

With Alan Moore & Lance Parkin …
 
After my last episode with the amazing Max Bemis from Say Anything (which you can still listen to here) I feel very privileged to bring to you this exclusive recording of Alan Moore & Lance Parkin in conversation at The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square, London.
 
Timed to coincide with the release of Magic Words, a biography about Alan which was written by Lance and published by Aurum Press, the night begins as a conversation between the two before becoming an ensemble piece followed by an audience Q & A.
 
Sit back and enjoy this very special recording as two giants of comics and literature meet for one very special night. And if you missed Alan’s first appearance with me on PCH then you can listen to that right here: popculturehound.net/pch-special-chatting-with-alan-moore.

Episode 65 – Reversing The Polarity with Max Bemis!

by Chris Thompson

With Max Bemis …
 
Following on from my recent discussion with Geof Darrow (which you can listen to here) I catch up with talented singer/writer Max Bemis (Polarity, Say Anything, Two Tongues) for a chat about his music and comics work, including his first gig with Marvel on their current anthology series A+X.
 
We discuss his background in comics; how writing lyrics differs from other forms of writing; what it’s like putting so much of yourself into your work; and how he feels about his work in the context of real-life circumstances and events. It’s a fascinating discussion that takes on a life of its own.

by Chris Thompson

With Geof Darrow …
 
Hot on the heels of my last episode with Riley Rossmo (which you can listen to here) and my recent film podcast (which you can listen to here) I bring the world of comics and film together with the legendary Geof Darrow (Hard Boiled, Big Guy & Rusty The Boy Robot, The Matrix) to discuss the long-awaited return of his Shaolin Cowboy from Dark Horse Comics.
 
We discuss his early years in advertising and animation; working with fellow legends like Jack Kirby, Jean Giraud (Moebius) and Frank Miller; his concerns about how people might interpret and view his work; plus his efforts to raise funds and awareness for PROTECT.

Episode 63 – Drumming Hellar with Riley Rossmo!

by Chris Thompson

With Riley Rossmo …
 
Following on from my recent discussion with Dean Haspiel (which you can listen to here) and my latest film podcast (which you can still listen to here) I finally catch up with the amazing Riley Rossmo (Green Wake, Bedlam, Rebel Blood) for a long overdue chat about his work, including the brand new series Drumhellar from Image Comics.
 
We discuss how he got started in comics; his influences and the way his art style has developed over time; the evolution of his coloring technique; what he thinks about retail and the direct market; as well as exploring the kind of storyteller he’d like to become.

by Chris Thompson

With Dean Haspiel …
 
After last week’s intimate discussion with Ulises Farinas & Erick Freitas (which you can listen to here) and my recent film podcast with Before Midnight‘s Graham Reynolds (which you can listen to here) I suit up to chat with writer/artist Dean Haspiel (American Splendor, The Alcoholic, Billy Dogma) about his work on The Fox from Archie & Red Circle Comics.
 
We discuss the many and varied stages of his career; working with folks like Howard Chaykin, Bill Sienkiewicz, Harvey Pekar and Jonathan Ames; his influences and aspirations; getting naked with Rich Johnston; and how all of that led him to working on The Fox with writer Mark Waid.

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.

Episode 60 – Discovering The Lost Boy with Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Ruth …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Adam P. Knave (which you can listen to here) and my recent, curiously related, film podcast (which you can listen to here) I give in to fate to chat with writer/artist Greg Ruth (Freaks of the Heartland, Conan: Born on the Battlefield, The Lost Boy).
 
Greg is someone I’ve been meaning to speak with for a long while now and it seems the universe was somehow in agreement as the stars (and our schedules) finally aligned for it to happen this week.
 
We discuss how he got started, the way fine art differs from comic art, why we need more comics for kids, and what he’s doing to address that. Plus we delve into his long-awaited next project with Ethan Hawke (Indeh) which will finally see release in the not-too-distant future.

by Chris Thompson

With Adam P. Knave …
 
After last week’s discussion with Julie Maroh about Blue Is The Warmest Color (which you can listen to here) and my recent chat with Before Midnight‘s Graham Reynolds (which you can listen to here), we return to the comic trenches with writer Adam P. Knave (Artful Daggers, Amelia Cole).
 
We talk about his background as a writer (both in and out of comics), how he came to co-writing and joining the Monkeybrain brand, the differences in writing for comics and prose, piracy and the future of digital comics, and what he’s working on next (with a few hints of things to come).

Episode 58 – Blue Is The Warmest Color with Julie Maroh!

by Chris Thompson

With Julie Maroh …
 
After talking Write or Wrong with Dirk Manning last week (which you can listen to here) and discussing film composition with Before Midnight‘s Graham Reynolds (which you can listen to here), we bring the world of comics and film together in this fascinating discussion with writer/artist Julie Maroh (Blue Is The Warmest Color, Skandalon).
 
You’ve probably heard of Julie’s book Le Bleu est une Couleur Chaude, which won the Fnac-SNCF Essential prize (as selected by the public) at the 2011 Angoulême International Comics Festival, and was recently translated into English as Blue Is The Warmest Colour by Arsenal Pulp Press. The book has also been adapted into a film (La Vie d’Adèle) which won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
 
We talk about how she got into comics, what it’s like to have such major success so early in your career, the perils and pitfalls of having your work developed in other media, what responsibilities she feels as a creator, and where she plans to take her career beyond Skandalon.
