The Hour Cosmic, Episode 31: Diggle! with Bryan Q. Miller

Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guest is Hollywood big-shot and new dad Bryan Q. Miller!

On this week’s show, among other things, we discuss:

-ALF comics (again)!

The Mummy, the Citizen Kane of Brendan Frasier movies!

-Image Expo!

-Matt living in a washing machine!

Let’s meet our guest, shall we?

Bryan Q. Miller is the writer of “Smallville Season 11,” a digital first series, for DC Comics, as well as a writer on Defiance on the SyFy Channel. Bryan got his start in comics writing for Smallville before moving on to launching the critically acclaimed “Batgirl” series featuring Stephanie Brown under the cowl. Recently, he successfully funded “Earthward,” an all-ages original graphic novel with Marcio Takara illustrating on Kickstarter. One the nicest guys we’ve ever had on our show, before we started recording, Bryan dropped so much The Mummy knowledge that it took us the first ten minutes of the show to be properly comfortable around a man of such intellect. He has gone “all in” on Twitter, so please follow him there.

As always, your hosts are:

Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls” “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Matthew Meylikhov – Bostonian, cat and beard enthusiast, co-writer of “Detective Space Cat” with Colin Bell, writer of “Morning Glories Babies,” “Morning Glories Academy Study Hall” (both backmatter for the Image Comics series “Morning Glories“) and “Control,” and letterer extraordinaire. He reads more comics than anyone on the planet, and has sworn off White Castle for life.
