I had so much fun chatting with Gregg Schigiel, the creator of PIX: One Weirdest Weekend (v1) and the forthcoming second volume, PIX: Too Super for School, which is available May 3, 2017, at your local comic shop or where finer books are sold. We talked about the publication of PIX through Image Comics, and Gregg answers many questions about PIX v1 (if you want to hear a more in-depth summary of PIX v1, listen to Episode 83). I learned a lot about Gregg’s creative process and his love of bears.
Special thanks to George of the George and Tony Entertainment Show for making this conversation possible. See the Links below to find out more about George’s weekly podcast about pop culture.
Host Anthony Desiato presents a special double-sized installment of My Comic Shop History: two episodes in one! First up is “In Defense of Batman v Superman,” in which Anthony sits down with Doug Doescher, Ralph Puma, and Damien Torres to discuss the film and try to find some redemption for it. The second half, “Other Side of the Table,” features cartoonist (X-Babies, Pix: One Weirdest Weekend) and podcaster (Stuff Said, Cruisin’ Together) Gregg Schigiel. In an informative one-on-one chat, Anthony and Gregg discuss the creator perspective on comic conventions and store signings and deliver a crash course on self-publishing a comic book project.
