We cover Turncoat from Boom Studios in this episode. This comic is a great look at the effects of colonialism on the common man set in a sci-fi dystopian world. Creators Alex Paknadel and Artyom Trakhanov do a great job with this 4-issue series telling a compelling tale and giving us lots to talk about.

Derek and Andy W. have the pleasure of talking with Ethan Young, whose latest work has just been released from from Dark Horse Originals. The Battles of Bridget Lee: Invasion of Farfall is tale set in a future world where humans fight an alien race called Marauders, creatures bent on extermination so as to colonize and populate for their own survival. The guys ask Ethan about the genesis of his Mulan-inspired hero, Bridget Lee, and his plans for taking her into further adventures. (Invasion of Farfall reads like the beginning of an action-packed adventure series.) They also take the opportunity to discuss Ethan’s notable work from last year, Nanjing: The Burning City, and his long-running webcomic Tails that wrapped up last year.
This week in Episode 243, I had a great time talking with comics creator Eric Palicki, who created Orphans Volume One, Red Angel Dragnet Volume One and Fake Empire, all now available in graphic novel format. He then scripted a Gamora and Kitty Pride story in Guardians of Infinity #6 for Marvel, so he’s developed quite a lot of great storytelling in sci-fi, fantasy and horror as well as worked for the House of Ideas. We talk about his writing experiences, including how all these terrific books came to be, then he gives us information on his next project and how we can be sure to get our order in for it! Be sure to listen to what he has to say! For more information, check out Eric’s website at this link!
