Episode 169 With Cy Dethan – March 22, 2015

If you enjoy variety in the comics and stories you like to read, you need to be reading what Cy Dethan writes! This talented scripter from the U.K. has been challenging my thinking for a long time, and I always enjoy that!

He’s also written Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth and Cancertown: Blasphemous Tumours, White Knuckle and other great stories.

Episode 167 With Joe Keatinge – March 1, 2015

You’re in for a fun discussion I enjoyed with comics pro Joe Keatinge, a creative force behind the excellent Shutter and also the scripter for Robert Kirkman’s Tech Jacket, both from Image Comics.

As we were in the process of setting up this interview, Joe asked if I had read Shutter. I told him I had not, and that sent me after the series, all of which made me a big fan of this dynamic and intriguing comic. If you haven’t read the story of Kate Kristopher and her adventurous family, you can catch up quickly by picking up the first trade and the subsequent issues before the #10 arrives on Wednesday, March 11. We also discussed Tech Jacket and what it’s like to work with Mr. Kirkman, something Joe compares to working with Steve Ditko on Spider-Man. We also briefly chat about a project he completed for Marvel as well as another he did for DC Comics. Don’t miss it!

Angeli Arbitrium – that’s the name of the new comic from Joseph Bradford and his partners at TikiGodComics.com.

As a result, I got to chat with Joe about how the book came together, including finding artist Kay. We discuss the format of the series, the characters and what he has in mind both for this book and other projects he will be sending our way.
