This week we begin our visit with the creators at Helioscope, a comics studio in Portland, Oregon!
Karl Kesel has been in mainstream comics for 30 years and has worked on some of the most popular characters from the Big Two. How has the industry changed in that time, for good and bad? Why is his fingernail always broken? How is inking therapeutic for him?
Then graphic novelist Dylan Meconis(Bite Me!: A Vampire Farce; Family Man; Outfoxed) gives us a lot of thoughts and tips for promoting a comic online, as well as why foxes are thought of as tricksters in numerous cultures, and how we’ll know when comics have really “arrived”.
In Trekker Talk Episode 23 we discuss the story City of the Dead featuring Ron Randall’s Mercy St Clair in an adventure with Karl Kesel’s Johnny Zombie. We also share your feedback in Trekker Transmissions and talk about an exhibit of classic Art Deco cars.
On this week’s show Shawn briefly discusses his future with Action Lab Entertainment, and then goes all in with a roundtable of special guests (David A. Price, Chris Campbell, Julian Lytle, and Martheus Wade) as they discuss the “Legends” mini-series from DC Comics!
And later in the show, Donny Salvo swings by to give us some interviews with top-notch creators from this year’s New York Comic Con.
The milestone! This week I take a look back on TW thus far and give thanks to all those who have supported and followed. Also, an e-mail, audio comments and a plethora of comic book reviews. Fifty in the can, ladies & gents, but I’m sure not done.
