Heather Nunnelly begins with a recap of the VACANT webcomics update! Also, learn about a VACANT figurine that almost happened.

Hayze gets a last name and Shadoweyes makes a guest appearance.

Next up, Michelle Nunnelly enjoys the Attack on Titan anime but that’s because she tries not to sweat the small stuff. Still, she can’t help but complain about Eren yelling too much (and she wants more Mikasa!).

Heather agrees… the characters need to shut the hell up.

A discussion about Neon Genesis Evangelion transitions into a chat about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Villains Micro-Series – Alopex #4 (an issue where Heather did flats and color assists!).

Ross Campbell uses basic color to great effect in the Alopex issue.

Finally, Michelle and Heather have been playing Shadowrun Returns, a Kickstarter-funded indie game. And they like it.

Heather made a custom Aex character for the game!

Everything Blows with Ross and Nick
Listen to Everything Blows #4 right now:

Ross Campbell has two new releases in comic shops today — Glory Vol. 2: War Torn and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Villains Micro-Series – Alopex #4. And we’re talkin’ about both of ’em, goddamn it!!!

We kick off the podcast with a recap of Ross’s collaboration with Joe Keatinge on Rob Liefeld’s Glory from Image Comics. Nick Marino just read the 12 issues from cover to cover and he’s got some thoughts about the experience. Plus, Ross shares his favorite and least favorite things to draw in the story, from waffles for breakfast to early 20th century France.

Then we discuss the new Alopex issue from IDW’s TMNT Villains Micro-Series. It’s a fruitful collaboration with Brian Lynch (and Heather Nunnelly!) that artfully digs into Alopex’s animal origins and sets a path for the character’s future.

After that, we discuss the Twilight audiobook chapters 1-6. Nick hates the tedious character descriptions while Ross loves all of the emotional teen drama.

Next: Twilight chapters 7-12 and our favorite SDCC announcements.

Listen to VACANT Bits #8 right now:

Heather and Michelle Nunnelly are joined by Ross Campbell to continue their conversation about self-esteem. Ross has done awesome comic books like Wet Moon, Glory, and Shadoweyes.

The crew talks about their personal troubles in the art world and tries to come up with suggestions to overcome these problems. Shoutout to Neil Gaiman’s inspiring speech at University of Arts.

And apologies to anyone who gets bad-mouthed on the show.

At the beginning, Heather talks about the VACANT update (seven new pages are up starting with Issue 4 Page 18), and Michelle and Heather drop a brief commentary on the video game Kentucky Route Zero.

A Podcast with Ross and Nick #12 – Gastrointestinally Yours

Ross Campbell and Nick Marino avoid talking about Wet Moon 5 and instead talk about mutual friends (including one that sat on Nick’s head), apartment construction, and, finally… WET MOON 5!!! But then the Wet Moon 5 bathroom scene leads into a long discussion of personal gastrointestinal problems, food, and Thanksgiving. Then it’s back to Wet Moon 5, but only briefly to talk about the fictional continuation of Harry Potter and Twilight.
