The Hour Cosmic, Episode 46: A Mixed Bag of Shame with Christopher Sebela

Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guest is writer of many comics, Christopher Sebela!

On this week’s show, among other things, we discuss:

– Aliens, Predators, Ghost, and Crime!

– The perks of being a co-writer!

– The Japanese film Versus!

Let’s meet our guest, shall we?

Christopher Sebela is the umpteenth Portlandian that we’ve had on the show, but we won’t hold that against him. Seemingly writing all the comics right now, he is currently the co-writer of “Ghost” for Dark Horse Comics (with friend of the show Kelly Sue DeConnick), the writer of “High Crimes” for Monkeybrain, as well as getting ready to launch “Alien Vs. Predator” for Dark Horse. He has also co-written “Fantastic Four” and “Captain Marvel” for Marvel Comics (with Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick, respectively), and wrote “Screamland” for Image Comics. He can be found on Twitter (@xtop) and 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.

Greg Matiasevich – Marylander, the Eastern seaboard’s most notable proponent of binding comic runs, and co-host of “Robots From Tomorrow,” a fantastic podcast on the Multiversity Podcast Network, co-hosted with our pal Mike Romeo. Greg loves his 80s Marvel and has a talent for always managing to find a Saturday press pass to New York Comic Con.
