Let’s meet our guest, shall we?

Tom Fowler is the artist of “Quantum and Woody” for Valiant Comics. Tom has drawn for just about every publisher under the sun, including working for “MAD Magazine” and contributing to great runs on “Venom” and “Green Arrow.” With friend of the show Jeff Parker, Tom drew “Mysterius” for WildStorm, and he recently contributed to the Kickstarter funded “Thrilling Adventure Hour” comic and the Indiegogo funded “True Patriot” as well. You can follow him on Twitter, check out his website, his Tumblr, as well as his Dungeons & Dragons sketch blog, D&D&D (not necessarily sketches of D&D characters – sketches he does while playing D&D).

As always, your hosts are:

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls” “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Matthew Meylikhov – Bostonian, cat and beard enthusiast, co-writer of “Detective Space Cat” with Colin Bell, writer of “Morning Glories Babies,” “Morning Glories Academy Study Hall” (both backmatter for the Image Comics series “Morning Glories“) and “Control,” and letterer extraordinaire. He reads more comics than anyone on the planet, and has sworn off White Castle for life.

Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.
