On this episode of the interview show, Derek and Gene talk with the strange minds behind the even stranger title, Punks: The Comic, Joshua Hale Fialkov and Kody Chamberlain. Their first trade collection, Punks: The Comic, Vol. 1: Nutpuncher, has just come out this month from Image Comics, and Josh and Kody are ready to spill the beans about their secrets to humorous success. They talk with the guys about the genesis of Punks, how they come up with story ideas, their collaborative process, and the possible future of the title. If you’re familiar with this comic, you know all about its offbeat humor, its non sequitur sensibilities, and its resistance to formula. Gene and Derek have the same kind of experience talking with the creators, demonstrating that the title’s humor comes from a idiosyncratic wellspring. Both Kody and Josh are entertainingly funny, and Punks is their weird labor of love…complete with cross-stitched Lincoln patters, Sean Connory-infested holidays, do-it-yourself awesome red ties, violent gnome deaths, a fish-faced Rick Remender, fun facts about urine, and Nutpuncher: The Game. The Two Guys also ask the collaborators about some of the titles they work on separately, such as Kody’s Sweets: A New Orleans Crime Story, and Josh’s The Bunker and The Life After. All in all, it is a fun and funky interview, and both Derek and Gene eagerly await the upcoming release of Punks: The Comic – CBLDF Special, where the historic Comics Code will get the roasting it truly deserves.
Be sure to check out Josh’s website, as well as Kody’s production blog.

Special thanks go out this week to Joshua Hale Fialkov, who joined me last-minute for an interview after Jonathan and I started talking at-length about Fialkov’s upcoming I, Vampire relaunch for DC. His enthusiasm, energy and humor made him instantly one of my favorite guests, and I’ll be rooting for this title even more now.
As Josh knows, I had some…technical difficulties (regular listeners will know this is not uncommon), and as a result the audio between Jonathan and me is pretty iffy. I personally think it’s listenable if you’re interested in what we’re saying, but listeners who want to skip it can jump forward to the 49:30 point to hear some words from our friends at Cloud City Comics & Toys, followed by the Fialkov interview.
Handy note to my fellow podcasters: Never trust Google Voice to record your conversation.
Our intro music this week is from “Peg O’ My Heart” by The Dropkick Murphys and Bruce Springsteen; our closing song is The Spin Doctors’s “Vampires in the Sun.”
Suck on that, Andrew Bennett.
