Comic Timing – Episode 183: Comfort, Kris, Conventions, Actors and Adam

13668731_1139552496107740_1425243582925356960_o

Episode 183 is now available for your ear holes! This is the last piece that was recorded during New York Comic Con weekend, only not at the con itself. Back at the old apartment, Ian sat down with Kris, Comfort Love and Adam Withers to discuss the growing trend of actors and actresses demanding more money from conventions in order to attend a show. How will this in turn affect attendees, artists and writers at the con, and how the show itself is run? What is the ceiling for how much people are willing to pay to hit a convention, and will it take a show saying, “No way,” to an actor to make that ceiling happen?

The group also delve into Comfort and Adam’s history attending shows as independent creators, and a few of the difficulties they faced getting their feet in the door as indie superhero creators, and Kris and Ian briefly get into Flame Con, what made it work so well, and why it is immediately one of the better small cons around. It’s a laid back, flowing conversation, and I hope you guys dig it as much as we all did recording it! For more on DashCon, follow this here link; in return, you get an extra hour in the ball pit. And Adi Fitri IS Malaysian!

You can e-mail the show at comictiming@gmail.com and be sure to Like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ComicTiming. Be sure to follow Ian on Twitter @i_am_scifi, Instagram at i_am_scifi or on Tumblr at heehaw-ds9.tumblr.com; Kris is on Twitter @lampbane, Instagram at lampbane, Tumblr at both lampbane.tumblr.com and Garak’s Clothiers, and check out her articles on Engadget. Finally, you can find Comfort and Adam on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr as well. And get The Uniques on Comixology while you’re at it, why don’tcha?

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #206: Evan Dahm

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, kickstarter, Evan Dham, Vattu, the Name & the Mark, the Sword & the Sacrament, Rice Boy, Heroes Con,

I love variety in my comics reading, and one of my favorite webcomics/trade paperbacks is the Vattu series from creator Evan Dahm, who I talk with during this 206th episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast. The first volume, called Vattu: the Name & the Mark, got me hooked when I met Evan at this year’s Heroes Con in North Carolina. He’s now in the middle of a current Kickstarter.com project for his second book, Vattu: the Sword & the Sacrament. They’re described as “the first two books of a graphic novel series about conquest and identity, set in a world of strange creatures.” To participate, be sure to go to this link before the project concludes on Thursday, December 17, at 9:10 a.m. EST.

Evan and I talk about several of the series’ engaging layers of story, what attracted me to it and keeps me coming back for more, the various characters in the books, and how you can also access Vattu! Go to rice-boy.com/vattu to enjoy this title as a webcomic series, which is how I got to read the second trade (and even part of the third)! It’s the winner of the 2014 Ignatz Award for Best Online Comic and the 2013 Stumptown Comic Arts Award for best webcomic. You can follow along via TumblrFacebook, or RSS.. If you’re looking for something new, creative and different, don’t miss this excellent book in graphic novel or webcomic format – after you hear my fun conversation with Evan, of course!
