Director’s Commentary – Mark Buckingham on Fairest!

by Chris Thompson

With Mark Buckingham …
 
In our latest commentary, Mark Buckingham takes us on a guided tour through the creation of the final Fairest story arc (collected as Volume 5), The Clamour For Glamour. Mark discusses what it was like writing for another artist (Russ Braun) – sharing stories, revealing secrets, and giving the kind of insight you couldn’t get anywhere else. So enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for future Director’s Commentaries!

by Chris Thompson

With Rachael Stott & Jessica Martin …
 
On this episode, I go to the pub with rising star Rachael Stott (Star Trek, Doctor Who) to discuss how she broke in, the art of portfolio reviews, learning on the job, and the path her career has taken in the short time since.
 
Then, as an extra bonus, the second-half of the episode casts a spotlight on writer/artist Jessica Martin (It Girl, Vivacity) as she provides a walkthrough of her Elsie exhibition currently on display in the Orbital Gallery.

Episode 146 – In Conversation with Mark Buckingham!

by Chris Thompson

With Mark Buckingham …
 
On this episode, I sit down for a chat with writer/artist Mark Buckingham (Fables, Fairest, Miracleman). We discuss his early work as an animator with Aardman, working with Neil Gaiman on The Truth & Miracleman, his breakthrough as an inker in the ’90s, and what brought him back to pencilling again. We would’ve got further, but time was against us – so expect a follow-up soon.
 
Plus: as an extra bonus, the second-half of the episode features Mark walking guests through his recent exhibition at the Orbital Gallery, followed by a brief Q&A. There’s some really great stuff discussed throughout, so I hope you’ll stay with us through this slightly longer episode!

Episode 143 – In Conversation with Steve Orlando at SDCC!

by Chris Thompson

With Steve Orlando at SDCC …
 
On this week’s show, I’m joined by James & Liz for a wine-tasting under the guidance of writer Steve Orlando (Undertow, Virgil). Steve discusses the finer points of Californian pinot gris, then opens up about how he got the job on Midnighter at DC Comics, what plans he has for the series, and how his own experiences have informed the character.
 
This interview was conducted at an outdoor restaurant during the madness of San Diego Comic-Con International, so there is some background ambience, shall we say. It’s a little different to the norm, but then isn’t that what you’d expect of a wine-tasting podcast?

Episode 130 – In Conversation with Fabio Moon!

by Chris Thompson

With Fabio Moon …
 
After last week’s thorough dissection of Secret Wars and all things Marvel with The Real/Fake Geeks, this time I’m back at the pub for a chat with Fabio Moon (Daytripper, BPRD: Vampire, Casanova & the upcoming Two Brothers).
 
Fabio & I discuss how he and Gabriel Bá started out in comics, what their early zines in Brazil were like, the process they use for working together, how they choose comics projects, and what they’ve got coming up next.

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!

Episode 111 – Pledging to the Wytches with Scott Snyder!

by Chris Thompson

With Scott Synder …
 
Following on from my last episode with the legendary Carlos Pacheco at NICE Convention in Bedford (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back just in time for the holidays with the long-awaited follow-up to Episode 100 with Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire, Wytches).
 
Scott and I discuss the overwhelming response to Wytches, his future plans for Batman, what teaching means to him as a writer, and address a few of the rumours he’s been attached to lately. If you only listen to one podcast this year then you’ve been missing out!

Episode 109 – Witness a Very NICE Reading with Mike Carey!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Carey …
 
Following on from last episode with John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with The Unwritten‘s Mike Carey for a reading from his latest novel, House of War & Witness (co-written with his wife & daughter) at the NICE Convention in Bedford.
 
In addition to another great dramatic reading, Mike and I sit down for a Q & A to discuss historical fiction, what it’s like writing with your family, how he approaches different forms of writing, and what’s coming up next.
 
NB: The sound quality during the reading is not ideal, but still well worth listening to. It improves during the Q & A around the 18-19 minute mark.

Episode 104 – Coming Home & Talking Indeh with Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Ruth …
 
After last week’s epic discussion with Emma Rios, Alison Sampson & David Lafuente at D.I.C.E. (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with creator Greg Ruth (Conan, The Lost Boy, Indeh) to finish the discussion we began in Episode 101 and finally talk more about him.
 
If you’ve heard Greg & I before, then you know this is going to be another epic conversation – and sure enough, true to form, it is. Listen in as we catch up on what Greg’s been up to and how his process has developed, along with some interesting side-steps and tangents along the way.

Episode 101 – Introducing Pop Culture Hound with Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Ruth …
 
How do you follow up the amazingly frank Episode 100 with Scott Snyder (which you can still listen to here)? I really don’t know … So instead, I’ve decided to do something completely different with Episode 101, and get my good friend Greg Ruth (Conan, The Lost Boy, Indeh) to interview me!
 
Taking the approach that 101 usually indicates an introductory unit, Greg and I chat about what comic/s meant the most to me growing up, how an Aussie like myself ended up at a comic shop in London, where the Pop Culture Hound name came from, and why old books just smell so damn good! It’s either going to lose me a lot of listeners or, somehow, help you all feel more connected … I’m hoping for the latter.
