Funny Book Splatter

018: Joseph Oliveira

June 2, 2017

This week I had a chance to speak with Joseph Oliveira, the writer of Ghost Island, currently on Kickstarter.  The book has one of the best pitches I’ve heard in years.  It’s Jurassic Park...but with ghosts.  Think about that for a minute.  Joseph is currently crowdfunding the release of the second issue of the series.  I’ve backed the project myself and I encourage you to do the same.  

Joseph can be found online through Twitter. Ghost Island can be found online on Twitter and Facebook.

Joseph and I connected through Twitter as he was an early listener of Funny Book Splatter.  If you are a horror comics creator and want to chat about your project and the genre in general, please reach out either through email at or through Twitter @JamesFerguson.  

In other news, I’m super excited that the next episode of Raging Nerdon is the milestone collector’s edition #50.  It’s been a helluva ride and we have some fun in store for this big episode, including a special giveaway including comics, graphic novels, pins, prints, and more.  You’ll have to listen to the episode to hear a secret word to enter to win.  Check it out at or whereever you get your podcasts.

Also, I want to give a quick plug to my editor Steve Pattee.  He’s been putting together an incredible deals newsletter through HorrorTalk including movies, books, comics, and more.  It’s not just horror either.  You can sign up here.
