Deconstructing Comics #561: Minneapolis comics scene vignettes

Eliot Rahal interviews Kristin Tipping at New Comic Book Day at Day Block Brewing Co. in Minneapolis on July 19

Minneapolis is increasingly becoming a “comics town”. While it doesn’t have the publisher presence of Portland, it’s filled with comics creators of all stripes, from mainstream guys to indy creators to web cartoonists.

It also may be the only town in the U.S. where New Comic Book Day is a bar event every Wednesday, with comics giveaways, standup comedy, and a creator interview!

In this episode, Tim talks with:

Tim with Katy Rex

  • Katy Rex, writer of Jade Street Protection Services, from Black Mask, editor of another Black Mask title, Kim and Kim, and writer of a forthcoming Dr. Who special from Titan Comics. She also works at local retailer Hot Comics.
John Bivens and Eliot Rahal

John Bivens and Eliot Rahal

  • Eliot Rahal, writer of Bloodshot’s Day Off and other books from Valiant, and a host of the New Comic Book Day event.
  • John Bivens, artist on Image Comics’ Spread and Dark Engine.

Kristin Tipping

Also, you’ll hear Eliot interviewing Kristin Tipping, creator of Evil Witch Allie, a comic we’ve critiqued!

Become a patron and you can see video of some of the standup comedians at New Comic Book Day!

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #279: Valiant’s Dinesh Shamdasani, Daniel Kibblesmith

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Valiant Comics, Dinesh Shamdasani, Daniel Kibblesmith, Quantum, Woody, Valiant High, X-O Manowar, Matt Kindt, Robert Venditti, Harbinger, C2E2, Ninjak, comixology

It’s becoming a yearly tradition during Chicago’s C2E2 convention that I get to talk with Valiant’s excellent creators. This year was no exception, and Episode 279 kicks off with my interview with Dinesh Shamdasani, Valiant’s CEO and Chief Creative Officer. We delve into all the fascinating happenings with X-0 Manowar, Harbingers and the upcoming digital presentation Ninjak Versus the Valiant Universe, among other things!

Then everything wraps up with my talk with Daniel Kibblesmith, who’s scripting the upcoming return of Quantum and Woody. He’s also writing the Valiant Digital Firsts miniseries Valiant High now available on Comixology, so we discuss both projects as well as a certain night job he has writing comedy for a well-known late-night TV show you might recognize! Don’t miss these fun conversations!

“What if you set a book on fire?”

Andy and Derek welcome Matt Kindt to the podcast to discuss Grass Kings, published through BOOM! Studios, his two current ongoing series from Dark Horse Comics, Dept. H and Ether, and his voluminous work for Valiant Comics. The guys have been wanting to get Matt on the show for years, so this interview is a long time in coming. And the conversation is quite substantive. Among other topics, they discuss the geneses of these recent series; Matt’s strategies for juggling multiple storylines at once; his collaborations with Tyler Jenkins (on Grass Kings), David Rubín (Ether), and Brian Hurtt (Poppy! and the Lost Lagoon); the many titles he has written for Valiant Comics; his love of genre storytelling; the unique way he “signs” certain books at cons; and his creative direction after the groundbreaking Mind MGMT. This has to be one of the most prolific creators the guys have ever had on The Comics Alternative, and they come nowhere near covering all of the topics they wanted to discuss with Matt. But this is all the more reason to have him back on the show in the not-too-distant future.
