This week, you’ll hear my special interview with Joe Martino, an artist/writer who I believe continues to be an important groundbreaker in Indie comics, and who recently concluded his successful Kickstarter campaign celebrating the 20th anniversary of Shadowflame, his first character and series. We also delve into other creations of his, including The Mighty Titan, Cyberines, and Ripperman, and Joe talks about Red Anvil Comics and the great products he, Dave Ryan and others are producing there. He also gives us a peek ahead so we can be on the lookout for his upcoming projects, so be sure to listen

Dreams are kind of like children in that they’re mysterious and difficult to understand. Yes, they are vital to our mental health, they say, but what happens if they are found to be more than just our imagination at work? This Indie comic explores that realm quite effectively, giving us a dark region to discover.
