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.

Following on from last week’s episode with Fabio Moon, I’m back at the pub again to chat with one of my favourite writers Ron Marz (Silver Surfer, Green Lantern, Shinku & more) about his amazing career.
 
Ron & I talk about how he first broke in to Marvel Comics with Silver Surfer, dealing with crazed fans & death threats on Green Lantern, what he learned from his days at CrossGen, and where his career is headed these days.

Episode 77 – Entering The Bunker with Joshua Hale Fialkov!

by Chris Thompson

With Joshua Hale Fialkov …
 
After the conclusion of my Angoulême Festival coverage with Paul Pope, Natalie Nourigat & Nicholas Hitori De (which you can still listen to here) – we return to our regularly scheduled programming this week with writer Joshua Hale Fialkov (Echoes, Skyman, The Bunker).
 
In what proves to be a rather frank (and lengthy) interview, Joshua opens up about how he got started, the personal trials and tribulations that have shaped his writing, and how he sees the industry today. It’s an entertaining & interesting discussion that I’d encourage everyone to hang around for.

Episode 5 – with Curt Pires & David Hine!

by Chris Thompson

With Curt Pires & David Hine …
 
In this week’s episode, Taylor and I dissect the amazing indie comic LP by newcomers Curt Pires and Ramon Villalobos. Done in a similar style and ethos to Sam Humphries Our Love Is Real, LP is a bold statement from two creators you should really keep an eye on. Curt even stops by to provide some background commentary after our Skype link-up fails.
 
From there I conduct another one of my famous pub chats with creator David Hine (Strange Embrace, Elephantmen, The Bulletproof Coffin). We discuss his writing technique, the upcoming Storm Dogs with Doug Braithwaite, his gradual shift away from the Big Two to creator-owned projects, and what else is on the horizon.
