Let’s meet our guest, shall we?

Tradd Moore is an artist currently living in Atlanta (or, if you will, Hotlanta), Georgia. Tradd is the artist behind both “The Strange Talent of Luther Strode,” and its sequel “The Legend of Luther Strode.” With any luck, late 2014 will bring us the third miniseries in the Strode Trilogy (Strodigy?), “The Legacy of Luther Strode.” He will also be illustrating issue #4 of Ales Kot’s upcoming Image series “Zero,” as well as continuing to provide some kick ass covers for Marvel. You can follow him on Twitter (@TraddMoore), and make sure to check out his Tumblr.

As always, your hosts are:

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.

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.
