So, what’s in my mailbox waiting for me when I come home from Cincinnati Comics Expo than Star Power and the Lonely War Vol. 4, a wonderful trade paperback. It’s fun, it’s action, it’s drama—it’s a comic I think should be read by a LOT of sci-fi/adventure comics fans! And it’s professional, just as good (if not better) than anything from Marvel or DC!
It’s another great double-header weekend, this time in Episode 333 with Jay Gillespie and Tyler Chin-Tanner!
In Episode 330, everything kicks off with Sean Wang, maker of Runners, a high-power, fun adventure series that tells a great sci-fi/fantasy story! Then the episode concludes with my interview with creator Mark Darden, who discusses his Guano Guy comic.
During Episode 328, I talk with comics creators Michael Terracciano and Garth Graham about their excellent sci-fi/adventure series Star Power!
Hip-Hop, sci-fi, and kung fu all hit the turntables for the mash-up mix of the year!
This week in Episode 243, I had a great time talking with comics scribe Eric Palicki, who created Orphans Volume One, Red Angel Dragnet Volume One and Fake Empire, all with various artists and now available in graphic novel format.
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. I learned a lot, and I’m sure you will, too! http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/majorspoilers/WComics185.mp3 Direct Download Subscribe
So much movie news comes out every week we don’t often have time to catch all of it, but that is what weekends are for! Here is your Saturday Rewind.
One of the things that today’s comics creators are doing to keep things fresh is to mix up two different genres. For instance, Daniel Corey recently started up Red City, a mixture of science fiction and crime drama. I continue to enjoy that book, by the way. But this week, I want to review the first issue of Copperhead, a blend of sci-fi and Western/cowboy sensibilities. This issue has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. It is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app,
