Deconstructing Comics #561: Minneapolis comics scene vignettes

Eliot Rahal interviews Kristin Tipping at New Comic Book Day at Day Block Brewing Co. in Minneapolis on July 19

Minneapolis is increasingly becoming a “comics town”. While it doesn’t have the publisher presence of Portland, it’s filled with comics creators of all stripes, from mainstream guys to indy creators to web cartoonists.

It also may be the only town in the U.S. where New Comic Book Day is a bar event every Wednesday, with comics giveaways, standup comedy, and a creator interview!

In this episode, Tim talks with:

Tim with Katy Rex

  • Katy Rex, writer of Jade Street Protection Services, from Black Mask, editor of another Black Mask title, Kim and Kim, and writer of a forthcoming Dr. Who special from Titan Comics. She also works at local retailer Hot Comics.
John Bivens and Eliot Rahal

John Bivens and Eliot Rahal

  • Eliot Rahal, writer of Bloodshot’s Day Off and other books from Valiant, and a host of the New Comic Book Day event.
  • John Bivens, artist on Image Comics’ Spread and Dark Engine.

Kristin Tipping

Also, you’ll hear Eliot interviewing Kristin Tipping, creator of Evil Witch Allie, a comic we’ve critiqued!

Become a patron and you can see video of some of the standup comedians at New Comic Book Day!

Question No 6

Inspired by the ’60s and a variety of British TV shows of a geeky variety (including The Prisoner), Japanese artist Question No. 6 is turning heads with her Dr. Who variant covers, and her drawings and articles on UK shows for Japan’s AXN cable network. This week Tim catches up with her to discuss her comic Cupcake and Astronaut, the reasons many Japanese creators use pen names, her plans for exhibiting and drawing in 2016, and more.

Super Hero Speak – #31: Is there a Doctor in the house?

This week Dave, Ben and John take a left turn from there normal super hero discussions to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who with the rest of their fellow whovians. Doctor Who has been on the air for 50 years and it can easily be argued that he is as much a super hero as any of his tights wearing counter parts.
