Episode 24 – Getting Ugly with Ken Kristensen & Ryan Estrada!

by Chris Thompson

With Ken Kristensen & Ryan Estrada …
 
Marvel Now! ends on a high (at least for us) with Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie’s Young Avengers #1, and Sam Humphries & Ron Garney’s Uncanny X-Force #1.
 
If that’s not enough, we also have TWO big interviews for you to enjoy … First up, I talk with Ken Kristensen, writer/co-creator of Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, which proved to be a surprise hit from Image Comics last week. We discuss the idea behind the book, how his collaboration with artist MK Perker came to be, and why Todd is more a crime book than anything else.
 
Then Taylor chats with creator Ryan Estrada, who is currently on the tail end of an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign for The Whole Story. They talk about comics, travel, Kickstarter success, and how to forge your own path in the industry today.

Episode 10 – with Victor Ochoa from Nobodies & Marvel Now!

by Chris Thompson

With Victor Ochoa …
 
We’re baaaaaack! After a week off to catch our breath and try to regain some semblance of our lives, Taylor and I return to tackle the oncoming storm that is Marvel Now! First up we discuss Jeff Parker, Carlo Pagulayan & Wellinton Alves’ RED SHE-HULK before diving into Rick Remender & John Cassaday’s highly-anticipated UNCANNY AVENGERS.
 
We then take a look at NOBODIES Volume 1, while Taylor discusses Volume 2 (which is wrapping up a very successful Kickstarter campaign) with series editor and founder Victor Ochoa. For those who are lucky enough to be at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con (NYCC) you can find Victor (and NOBODIES) in Artist’s Alley at Table B6. Why not stop by and tell him we sent you?
 
And if that’s not enough, this episode also features the debut of a previously unreleased track by the legendary Shaky Kane! Entitled Big Red Planet, we defy you not to let this catchy tune burrow it’s way into your brain and stay there …
