Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 39: An Interview with the Creators of Subatomic Party Girls

Rock and Roll Never Forgets

SubatomicPartyGirlsThis week on The Comics Alternative podcast Andy and Derek invite the creators of the new digital comic, Subatomic Party Girls (Monkeybrain Comics), into their virtual studio for an interview. Chris Sims, Chad Bowers, and Erica Henderson share with the Two Guys with PhDs (Talking about Comics) the origins of their new series; the unusual character lineup; their unique ChrisChadmashup of absurd humor, rock history, and sci-fi madness; and their working relationship, in all of its dysfunctional fun-filled glory. Along the way they discuss their other works, such as Awesome Hospital and their upcoming Oni comic Down! Set! Fight!, and how Subatomic Party Girls is providing them with new challenges. The conversation is jam-packed with trivia, pop cultural allusions, and sundry marginalia, and at times it seeps into crannies that you wouldn’t expect. But Chris, Chad, and Erica always bring it back to their new series and how being interviewed on The Comics Alternative has been the highlight of their careers. We couldn’t agree more.

Be sure to check out Subatomic Party Girls at the Monkeybrain Comics website and purchase issue #1 through Comixology.

About Derek Royal

The Comics Alternative is a weekly podcast focused on the world of alternative, independent, and primarily non-superhero comics. (There’s nothing wrong with the superhero genre…we just want to do something different.) New shows become available every Wednesday…much like the comic books you get. Episodes feature reviews of graphic novels and current ongoing series, discussions of upcoming comics, examinations of collected editions, in-depth analyses of a variety of comics texts, spotlights on various creators and their oeuvre, roundtable discussions with prominent critics and scholars in the field, and interviews with the artists and writers who make all of this possible. Along the way, Andy and Derek will talk about the various books that they are reading; the many pop cultural references that, for better or worse, inform their lives; and the unpredictable (and inexplicable) weirdness that seems to creep into each episode. In essence,The Comics Alternative podcast is brilliantly simple: Two guys with PhDs talking about comics.
