Episode 215 With Bohdan Neswiacheny – February 7, 2016

You may not realize it yet, but Florida is a terrific place to find people who make great independent comics! This week, I chat with Bohdan Neswiacheny, one of the main creative forces behind Resistance Entertainment, a South Florida company focusing on unique film and television production, novels, music and, of course, comics!

We’ve been bumping into each other at conventions, promising we’d chat for my podcast at some point! During episode 215, we talk online for the first time! We discuss many of the projects Bohdan and his team, including Jeremy Katanic, who works with him on Blackbird, a unique book exploring a culture I’ve never seen comics delve into before! We also talk about Morning Star, a comic in the same universe as Blackbird, his new book Rancor, which he describes for us.

Besides other irons he has in the fire, Bohdan talks about Mind Taker, a film of his premiering on Wednesday, March 9, at the Lake Worth Playhouse in downtown Lake Worth in Florida. For more information on this and Bohdan’s other products, go to this link!

I always go to my local comics shop looking for a great story! This week, during episode 213, I talk with Brahm Revel, creator of a series of graphic novels from Oni Press called Guerillas, which is an all-time favorite of mine!

In order to get your copy of Underworld, you can ask your local comics shop to order this 130-page epic tale. If that’s not possible, starting Thursday, December 17, you can order it at Amazon.com! Or you can get it through this link at the Renegade Arts Entertainment website! It’s highly recommended, and something sure to add some much-needed variety to your reading! Don’t miss it!

Episode 206 With Evan Dahm – December 6, 2015

I love variety in my comics reading, and one of my favorite webcomics/trade paperbacks is the Vattu series from creator Evan Dahm, who I talk with during this 206th episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast. The first volume, called Vattu: the Name & the Mark, got me hooked when I met Evan at this year’s Heroes Con in North Carolina. He’s now in the middle of a current Kickstarter.com project for his second book, Vattu: the Sword & the Sacrament. They’re described as “the first two books of a graphic novel series about conquest and identity, set in a world of strange creatures.” To participate, be sure to go to this link before the project concludes on Thursday, December 17, at 9:10 a.m. EST.

Evan and I talk about several of the series’ engaging layers of story, what attracted me to it and keeps me coming back for more, the various characters in the books, and how you can also access Vattu! Go to rice-boy.com/vattu to enjoy this title as a webcomic series, which is how I got to read the second trade (and even part of the third)! It’s the winner of the 2014 Ignatz Award for Best Online Comic and the 2013 Stumptown Comic Arts Award for best webcomic. You can follow along via TumblrFacebook, or RSS.. If you’re looking for something new, creative and different, don’t miss this excellent book in graphic novel or webcomic format – after you hear my fun conversation with Evan, of course!
