It’s Episode 425 of the Wayne’s Comics Podcast, and this week I have three special guests! First up is David Byrne from The Couch, Spy-DeerMan, and now Stake! David has an already successful Kickstarter going on now for Stake, but you can make this high-octane horror book happen by helping him reach his stretch goals! Go to this link! Next, Frank Gogol from Grief and Dead End Kids briefly comes back to remind us to sign up at our local comics shop for his upcoming book, No Heroine! Then everything wraps up with the return of Sam Johnson, who has a Kickstarter project happening now for Geek-Girl: Tights ‘n’ Capes, which you can support at this link! We talk about his successful franchise, including what we might expect from Ruby Kaye, Summer, and the rest in the near future! You’ll find the sequence and times you can hear each interview during the podcast below:
This week we continue our coverage of The Unworthy Thor with issue #2!
There’s action aplenty as the Odinson and his pal Beta Ray Bill face off against Jeff Goldblum! Thor dreams, a new hammer appears, and there are weird eyeball tie fighter thingers!
It’s even more fun than a toilet paper shortage!
Now is the time to order your copy of Grit! In Episode 424, I talk with scripter Brian Wickman about his new comic, which is described this way: “Grit is Southern-fried sword and sorcery and pulp fantasy adventure in the mold of The Witcher by way of Southern Bastards. When a routine troll hunting gig takes a gruesome turn, Old Man Barrow finds himself in the company of a wannabe doomsday cult. Just how’s he going to get out of this backwoods nightmare? Well, that axe ain’t just for show.” Let your LCS know you want MAR202088 from Scout Comics in the latest Previews before March 18! You can also download his first comic Big White on his website. It’s a sci-fi horror story you won’t want to miss. You can keep up with Brian on his personal Twitter page and on his website.
It’s time for the return of creator Joel Rodriguez from Dusk County Chronicles in Episode 423! This great Indie comic initially featured short horror stories that went where fans like me would never expect them to go! Now he’s got a Kickstarter going for Dusk County Chronicles: Nightfall #1, so we talk about how this series came to be as well as what we can expect from the creative team in this latest mini-series and beyond! This is the perfect chance to support this excellent up-and-coming comics creator, so be sure to listen to our fun conversation, then support this book!

In Episode 422, I have a great conversation with Brandon Rhiness from Higher Universe Comics, and he discusses two of his best-known books, Chainsaw Reindeer and The Boy with a Balloon for a Head. You can tell just from the titles that these both are going to have creative storytelling! The first comes from Action Lab, and it is described this way: “A reindeer has enough of Santa’s abuse and embarks on a world-wide swath of destruction… with a chainsaw!” Here’s more about the second title: “When a family moves to a new town, their son has difficulty adjusting because he’s ‘different’.” You can keep up with Brandon on his personal Facebook page and at Higher Universe’s Facebook page.
