Get ready for a great conversation about Indie comics! Creator Sam Johnson is back in Episode 383, and he has important news about Geek-Girl, his high-power comic about a young girl who gains access to powers through, of all things, a pair of glasses! He’s got a Kickstarter beginning this week, something he tells us about, including giving us information on how we can support this great Indie comic! Then we discuss the release of his latest issues and what we might expect from him in the near future! For more, go to this link!
Once again, it’s a double-header episode again this week, as #293 focuses on two great comics creators! First up is Rich Tomasso, THE creator behind Spy Seal, a fanciful yet realistic spy story that follows the adventures of a seal character who becomes a spy! We discuss how he’s bringing this imaginative title to life with Image Comics, who the characters are in this spy franchise, and what we can expect from him in Spy Seal in the future! For more on this graphic novel series and about Rich, go to this website.
Then everything concludes with the return of Sam Johnson, who updates us on his Geek-Girl comic, among other things! His Kickstarter for the Geek-Girl collected edition has successfully concludedt! Sam also discusses what’s in the future for this most “human” of super-human comics! For more about Geek-Girl, go to this link! You can follow Sam here to keep up with what he’s creating!
Ian and Brent discuss Wanted, the film based on the Top Cow comic book series! How faithful is it? Does it measure up to the other comic book films released this summer? And what do New York sewer rats have to do with all this? Find out here, at Comic Timing!
