Episode 234 With Frank Martin, Roland Mann and Deonna Herrold

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Insane Comics, Frank Martin, Modern Testament, Anthology of the Ethereal, Roland Mann, Deonna Herrold, Tiny, Thumbelina, MegaCon, Orlando, Kickstarter,

This week’s episode features two great interviews with projects you can buy or support this week! First up is Frank Martin from Insane Comics, creator of Modern Testament: Anthology of the Ethereal. Here’s the first volume’s description: “An angel, a demon, and a Horseman of the Apocalypse: these beings, although ancient and iconic, struggle to be understood and find their place in today’s society. Humanity has changed since their creation, and they along with it. But together we’ll chronicle them on their journey through tales of self-worth and purpose. They’re stories of discovery we’re currently writing every day in our very own Modern Testament. 32 pages in FULL COLOR!” There’s a Free Comic Book Day version available for free at this link (digitally only), and the second volume comes out on Monday, June 20, so be sure to go to their website store to get your copy!

Then we wrap things up with a fun chat with Roland Mann and Deonna Herrold, creators of Tiny, which is described as “a comic adaptation of Thumbelina.” We talk about how this two-issue series has come together, including how the two creators met through Roland’s daughter. It’s Deonna’s first comic creation experience, so we discuss what this has been like, including meeting fans at the recent MegaCon in Orlando, Florida.  They have a Kickstarter campaign underway, and you can support them by going to this link and helping out!

This was the second panel I attended at MegaCon 2015. It occurred in Room 311EF from 11:50 am to 12:40 pm. Jimmy and Amanda discussed their work as writers on the title HARLEY QUINN. They also shared with the panel audience what to expect from the new series STARFIRE, which will premiere in June after the conclusion of DC’s CONVERGENCE event series.
