My Comic Shop History 4.10: Con Season with the Cosplayer (Peggy Pincurls)

As they explore this fascinating aspect of con life, Anthony, Stephanie, and Peggy address the power of cosplay to connect & inspire, important issues of gatekeeping & consent, and the practical realities & physical toll of donning a costume on the convention floor.

My Comic Shop History 4.6: Con Season Survival Guide

Host Anthony Desiato recruits two convention veterans and Alternate Realities refugees, Drew Cheskin and Brian O’Dea, to share their tips for surviving comic conventions.

My Comic Shop History 4.5: Aw Yeah Con Season!

Host Anthony Desiato heads over to beautiful downtown Harrison, NY, to speak with two of the owners of Aw Yeah Comics NY: comic book creator Franco (TINY TITANS, ENCOUNTER, and the upcoming SUPERMAN OF SMALLVILLE) and ReedPOP’s Mike Negin (C2E2 Event Manager). They discuss Aw Yeah’s recent “Legends” signing, Mike and Franco’s comic shop histories, and some hot topics in the world of comic conventions—from the risk of over-saturating the industry with too many shows to striking a balance between the interests of old-school comic fans and the wider pop culture audience.

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Valiant Comics, Dinesh Shamdasani, Daniel Kibblesmith, Quantum, Woody, Valiant High, X-O Manowar, Matt Kindt, Robert Venditti, Harbinger, C2E2, Ninjak, comixology

It’s becoming a yearly tradition during Chicago’s C2E2 convention that I get to talk with Valiant’s excellent creators. This year was no exception, and Episode 279 kicks off with my interview with Dinesh Shamdasani, Valiant’s CEO and Chief Creative Officer. We delve into all the fascinating happenings with X-0 Manowar, Harbingers and the upcoming digital presentation Ninjak Versus the Valiant Universe, among other things!

Then everything wraps up with my talk with Daniel Kibblesmith, who’s scripting the upcoming return of Quantum and Woody. He’s also writing the Valiant Digital Firsts miniseries Valiant High now available on Comixology, so we discuss both projects as well as a certain night job he has writing comedy for a well-known late-night TV show you might recognize! Don’t miss these fun conversations!

 

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #224 With Nadja Baer And Nathan Lueth

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Ruben Romero, Richard Rivera, Bob Salley, Three Swords, Kickstarter, Salvagers, Think Alike Productions, Stabbity Bunny, Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas, George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones, Athos, Porthos, Aramis.

I first discovered Impure Blood and Melting Down at this year’s C2E2, and after reading their great books, I knew I had to interview creators Nadja Baer and Nathan Lueth. They discuss how they’re bringing the Impure Blood series of graphic novels to fans everywhere, including how Nathan introduced Nadja to comics, how they work together as a team, and how they put these books together, including using laying out the pages in landscape format instead of the usual portrait mode comics often appear in. This series is also a webcomic, with a new page appearing every Monday. We also talk about Melting Down, which is described as “a comic for kids with Asperger’s Disorder and challenging behavior,” a comic I found both riveting and educational.

To check out Impure Blood online, you can visit their website at this link. To buy these books, you can also go to this link at Amazon.com for Volume 1, here for Volume 2, and this location for Volume 3.  Volume 4 is due Winter 2017.Melting Down can be found here on Amazon as well.  You can also purchase their comics through the avenues listed in this episode. Highly recommended!
