Episode 141 – Matt Hawkins, Andres Salazar & Christian Beranek!

by Chris Thompson

With Matt Hawkins, Andres Salazar & Christian Beranek …
 
Following last week’s SDCC extravaganza with Nick & Zack Keller, Chris Emgard, Man Vs. Rock, Phil Kim and Jason Lenzi, I’m back with another jam-packed episode featuring Top Cow’s Matt Hawkins (Think Tank, Tales Of Honor), Andres Salazar (Pariah, Missouri) and Christian Beranek (Validation) at San Diego Comic-Con International!
 
First up I chat with Matt at the Top Cow booth; then meet with Andres in the Small Press aisles; and finally catch up with Christian for a long-overdue chat at the pub. It’s a wonderful and varied series of talks with as much depth as we could manage in the time we had.

It’s Time … Malta Comic Con Has Arrived (And So Have I!)

by Chris Thompson

This morning I sit here typing from the comfort of my lovely room at the Hotel Santana in Qawra, Malta. We arrived late last night (very late!) in preparation for this weekend’s third annual Malta Comic Con. I first heard about the convention almost two years ago – just after the first one had taken place – and my interest was immediately piqued.
 
Malta is a beautiful country, so any excuse to come here (especially for comics) is a welcome one. The people are as warm as their surroundings, and there’s a pervasive sense of relaxation that settles in while you’re here. Wicked Comics, the organisers behind this wonderful event, have put us up in the same hotel as the other guests, so it’s shaping up to be a great weekend.
 
David Lloyd, Gary Erskine, Tim Perkins, Jon Haward, Marco Santucci, Renee Witterstaetter, Michael Golden, Thomas Gosselin, Marco Santucci and Lucio Parrillo are already here – and I’m told Emma Vieceli, Kate Brown, Sonia Leong and Sean Azzopardi will be joining us later this afternoon. If you haven’t already seen the full guest line-up I recommend checking out the website and plotting your trip for next year. In the meantime, I’ll be reporting live from this year’s show so you feel a little less left out in the cold …
