This week, it’s the return of Salvagers creator Bob Salley, who brings with him Kelly Bender from Starburn. We get the latest news from both creators about their sci-fi books, then we dive into an extended discussion about independent comics, including how each came up with their book concepts, how they were produced and what we might see from them in the future. If you didn’t get to attend the recent San Diego Comic-Con, be sure to tune in and listen to this dynamic panel discussion.

In that earlier article, I started off with the following idea: If technology didn’t exist at the level we now experience it, many devices we’re used to would seem like magic to us. For example, if someone in the Middle Ages pulled out an iPhone, anyone seeing it would not have any idea how it works. Well, in Raphael
If technology didn’t exist at the level we now experience it, many devices we’re used to would seem like magic to us. For example, if someone in the Middle Ages pulled out an iPhone, anyone seeing it wouldn’t have any idea how it works.

AAM/Markosia has announced a new Starship Troopers one-shot called War Stories: Tasch, that arrives in stores in December 2008.Â War Stories: Tasch is written by Cy Dethan with art by Neil van Antwerpen and Peter-David Douglas.
