011: Fabian Rangel Jr

April 14, 2017

This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Fabian Rangel Jr, the writer of Doc Unknown, Namwolf, Space Riders, and Blood Brothers.  These are some exciting times for Fabian. Doc Unknown will be collected in a new hardcover from Dark Horse Comics this July.  Namwolf starts up on April 19th from Albatross Funnybooks.   Dynamite Entertainment will be serializing Blood Brothers beginning in June. And RIGHT NOW! You can go to your local comic book shop and pick up the first issue of Space Riders Volume 2 from Black Mask Studios.  If you haven’t checked out his work yet, you will have ample opportunity to do so in the coming months.  It is something I highly recommend.

010: Danny Luckert & Marie Enger

April 7, 2017

To celebrate reaching the double digits in number of episodes, we’ve got double the guests!  This week I spoke with Danny Luckert and Marie Enger, the artist and colorist, respectively, of Regression, an upcoming series from Image Comics, written by Cullen Bunn.  I got an advanced look at the first issue and I can assure you, this is a comic you will want on your pull list.  It is absolutely terrifying and unlike anything you’ll see on the stands today.  Regression #1 is set for release on May 10th.  It’s currently available for pre-order with the final order cutoff date of April 17th.

Danny can be found online at his official website.  Marie can be found online at her official website and on Twitter

Finally, my non-horror podcast, Raging Nerdon with co-host BJ Boothe, is closing in on fifty episodes.  The latest, Stephen Hawking Superpro, dropped earlier this week and we get real angry about some of the recent comments from Marvel Comics blaming diversity and artists for their recent sales slump.  You can guess what we think of that.

009: Michael R. Martin

March 31, 2017

This week I spoke with Michael R. Martin, the writer of Blood and Dust from Action Lab: Danger Zone.  This is a stellar horror comic that I described as Vampire Clint Eastwood fights Swamp Thing.  Really cool stuff.  Michael has an inspiring journey as a creator.  He went through all kinds of trials and tribulations to get this book made and he never gave up.  It shows the lengths that a creator can go when he just has to tell his story.  

Michael can be found online on Twitter.

Also, if you like this show, you might like my other show, Raging Nerdon where I chat about nerdy things with my co-host BJ Boothe.  This week we dive into some trailers most notably the recent ones for Justice League and Spider-Man Homecoming.  It’s a good time to be a nerd.

March 24, 2017

This week’s guest is Michael Gordon, the writer of Transdimensional, an upcoming mini-series currently on Kickstarter, set to be released from T Pub Comics.  This is a sci-fi / horror book with some ultra creepy stuff.  I got a look at the first issue and it definitely delivers.  The Kickstarter campaign has already met its funding goal so it is definitely happening.  Michael is a first time creator and you can hear the excitement in his voice when he talks about the project.

March 10, 2017

This week’s guest is G.S. Faulk, the writer of Last Days of Kevin, a new horror comic series currently on Kickstarter.  I got a peek at the first issue and it is some creepy stuff.  Be sure to check it out.  It was inspiring listening to G.S.’s determination in creating this comic book.  In speaking with him and other first time creators, I can’t help but leave the conversation wanting to make my own comics too.  I hope you receive similar inspiration.

005: Robert Geronimo

March 3, 2017

This week I spoke to Robert Geronimo, creator of the dark fantasy graphic novel, Kingdom of Blood, currently on Kickstarter.  I selfishly used this conversation to learn a bit more about this genre as it's one I'm not that familiar with.  I just don't get it.  After speaking with Robert, I have a newfound appreciation for it and I'm amped to read more from his book.  Be sure to check out his book on Kickstarter.

Robert can be found online at his official website and on Instagram.  He also wrote a guest feature for HorrorTalk called Sequential Fear: Horror Graphic Novels You Must Read.

February 24, 2017

This week I had the pleasure of speaking to Joshua Williamson, the writer of Ghosted, Birthright, and Nailbiter, which sadly is coming to an end with issue #30, scheduled for release on March 1st.  I have loved this book since the first issue.  It was my #1 pick for horror comic of the year in 2014 AND 2015, featuring the fictional town of Buckaroo, Oregon, home to some of the world’s deadliest serial killers.  If you haven’t read this book yet, you are in for a treat.
