This is the episode where I talk about Justice League #1 from May of 1987 by Kieth Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, Kevin Maguire, Terry Austin, Gene D’Angelo, Bob Lappan, Andrew Helfer, and published by DC Comics.
This episode I do another Question and Answer session, everyone was so supportive of my first attempt. I will be doing more of these type episodes moving forward, so we connect and interact more as a community of the Savant Society. Enjoy!
Episode 398 is a very special one as I interview high-power comics creators! Things kick off with the great team of creators on Cat & Mouse #2, a comics miniseries with a second Kickstarter launching this week, on Tuesday, September 10, one you should definitely support! I talk with writer Roland Mann, inker Barb Kaalberg, and artist Alex Gallimore, here’s the location on Kickstarter.com: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rolandmann/cat-and-mouse-2-the-second-of-a-four-issue-mini-series . Be sure to get this fun adventure comic!
Then everything wraps up with my interview with writer Brenton Lengel from Snow White Zombie
Apocalypse, an upcoming Scout Comic you can order now at your local comics
shop. We discuss how this fascinating one-shot came to be, how you can support
the book and help Brenton and his team provide more of this excellent comic,
and what else Brenton is up to! It’s described as “a story of deep woods and
old magic mixed with a heavy dollop of blood, sex, kung fu and gender politics.
Y’know, fairy tales as usual.” Tell your store to order it today so you can be
sure to pick it up when it arrives in local comics shops on Wednesday, October
30, just in time for Halloween! For more, go

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino talk about the creation process behind Chapters 4-6 of The Evil Life webcomic, detailing Hester Herman’s monstrous marmot transformation and Prince Gloom’s astral plane rendezvous with his parents.
The first 46 minutes of our episode are all about writing and drawing these chapters of The Evil Life, which included some of the earliest scripts and sketches from our collaboration. As we near the end of that conversation, we broach the topic of endings and specifically sticking the landing with a good ending (mostly cuz we’re currently hard at work on the end of our top secret graphic novel about underwater koalas). After the end theme at around 46:30, we go on a Star Wars tangent and debate the most recent trilogy as we speculate on the franchise’s ability to stick their own landing.
This episode is all about the 2018 horror comedy film Slaughterhouse Rulez which was directed by Crispian Mills and starred Asa Butterfield, Finn Cole, Hermione Corfield, Michael Sheen, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg.
My apologies to Michael Sheen whom I referred to in the episode as Michael White.
