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.

Episode 56 – From Zero to Heroes with Ales Kot!

by Chris Thompson

With Ales Kot …
 
After last week’s episode with Ian Churchill (which you can listen to here) and my recent film podcast (which you can listen to here) it’s time to return to an old favourite with Ales Kot (Change, Wild Children, Suicide Squad). Ales was my first guest way back on Episode 3 and we’ve had him on the show twice since then, so it’s always a pleasure to have him back.
 
This time around we discuss drugs in comics, what he’s been up to since we last spoke, the changeover from DC to Marvel, what people can expect from Zero, and, in a PCH exclusive, Ales reveals a brand new project (or two) coming out next year from Image Comics.

Episode 39 – Ales Kot & John Ostrander Talk Suicide Squad!

by Chris Thompson

With Ales Kot & John Ostrander …
 
In a very special episode of the Pop Culture Hound podcast, I’m joined by the legendary John Ostrander and upcoming writer Ales Kot to discuss their work on Suicide Squad. We look at the pressure on writers today, age-ism in comics, what it takes to make a good story, and how to expand the comic market.
 
Plus we feature what is most likely the funniest conversation we’ve had on the podcast to date (you’ll know when you get there!) … It’s a jam-packed episode, full of juicy goodness, so sit back and settle in.

Episode 19 – Changing with Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske!

by Chris Thompson

With Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske …
 
We’re a bit late this time around, but it’s not entirely hopeless as Taylor and I take a deeper look at Dennis Hopeless’ two contributions to Marvel Now! Avengers Arena #1 and Cable & X-Force #1.
 
Taylor also chats with Ales Kot (Wild Children) and Morgan Jeske (Disappearing Town) about working together on their new mini-series Change from Image Comics. Plus we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the rather potent Dogma.

Episode 3 – with Ales Kot from Wild Children & Change!

by Chris Thompson


With Ales Kot …
 
In this episode, I chat with creator Ales Kot about his life and inspirations (both in and out of comics) as well as his Image Comics projects Wild Children and Change.
 
Ales is the up-and-coming writer you need to know about, and if you don’t believe me now then you will by the end of this interview.
 
Also in this episode, Taylor and I have an in-depth discussion about Wild Children while taking a look at some of the more interesting references contained within.
